Thanks to the ever observant Rachel Maddow, we are proud to bring you news of a truly monumental moment in the world annals of stupidity.

From Politico:

"A conservative faction of the Republican National Committee is urging the GOP to take a harder line against both Democrats and wayward Republicans, drafting a resolution to rename the opposition the “Democrat Socialist Party”

The resolution, proposed by a committeeman from Washington state, was agreed upon by 16 RNC members from 16 different states...."

Can any normal person peer into a mind addled to the point that its owner believes he has the right to rename the other party? What a great campaign advantage it would be if you could give your opponents a really hateful name. Maybe that would work, yeah? All you need to do is find a way to get everyone in the country to start using your name. This is truly a new high in the substitution of sheer lunacy for constructive participation in the political process. How can the Democrats even deal with people who think their role includes this kind of malicious nonsense?

Oh well, I'm game. No one ever accused me of a shortage of political malice. So here go a couple of my suggestions for renaming their party: Maybe the Republifuehrers. Or how about the Mussolinicans. Or maybe the Zimbabwican Party. I'm not sure I've got there yet- any suggestions?

I have to add in little letters that, as much right wing stupidity as I have seen (and as you may be able to tell, I've seen a lot), this has left me totally stunned. Believe me, I will keep my eyes on this. It is mental deficiency too colossal to be forgotten.
