Okay Carol, let's go with a popular definition of insanity often attributed to Albert Einstein;<quoted text>
Because far too many on the left have simply lost their minds.
It's either a symptom of being power hungry or it's tied in with the dead birds and fish somehow. Not sure but think it's more the former.
Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
The Republicans in the House have voted 40 times to repeal the ACA with no chance of it going any further. That would seem to indicate that they've totally lost their minds.
Your 2012 primary slate was a perfect example. You had one viable candidate in John Huntsman who could have actually won but he wasn't as delusional enough to attract the extreme right wing base. So when all of the crazies finally fell to the wayside you were left with a sociopathic snake oil salesman who got drubbed even in his home state.
