No nation can survive half sane and half mad. If the Democratic Party were prosecuted under the RICO Act as a major criminal racketeering enterprise, party leaders could always plead insanity. I give you Nancy "I Hear Dead People" Pelosi, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Sheila Lee Jackson and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as only a small sample of prominent Democrats who obviously are not playing with a full deck. Would you ever entrust your children or grandchildren to people like these? Apparently, even Obama's former White House chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, realized that decision-makers in his party were candidates for the asylum. "The loony left" is what he charitably called them.
So, to the description of the Democratic Party as the party of lies, hate and the gutter, add madness.
