Below are the recent Daily Kos/Research 2010 poll results demonstrating what a weird and dangerous cul-de-sac the Republican Party has driven itself into. It is an intellectual backwater of conspiracy nuts, evolution-deniers, “birthers,” secessionists and other right wing fantasists. As Kos writes:

42 percent of Republicans aren’t really patriotic. They pretend to love America only when they approve of the president. These traitors don’t believe in democracy, in our nation’s founding ideals, or in our flag. To them, those colors run. They are cowards.

Note, secession sentiment is MUCH stronger in the South than elsewhere — 33 percent want out, compared to just 52 percent who want to stay. In the Northeast, “just” 10 percent want out, in the Midwest, its 18 percent, and in the West, it’s 16 percent. Can we cram them all into the Texas Panhandle, create the state of Dumbfuckistan, and build a wall around them to keep them from coming into America illegally?

This is really scary.
