It used to be that they never allowed candidates to be selected from Desolation Row,, but Things Have Changed.
The indefatigable professor speaks out once again:
Noam Chomsky, the noted radical and MIT professor emeritus, said the Republican Party has become so extreme in its rhetoric and policies that it(GOP Is 'Literally A Serious Danger To Human Survival’). Their denials of climate change (Scribbler) are psychotic delusions (Doomsday Clock).
poses a “serious danger to human survival.”
The Exploding Candidate and The Star
“Today, the Republican Party has drifted off the rails,” Chomsky, a frequent critic of both parties, said in an interview Monday with The Huffington Post. “It’s become what the respected conservative political analysts Thomas Mann and Norman Ornstein call ‘a radical insurgency’ that has pretty much abandoned parliamentary politics.”
Chomsky cited a 2013 article [PDF] by Mann and Ornstein published in Daedalus, the journal of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, analyzing the polarization of the parties. The authors write that the GOP has become “ideologically extreme, scornful of facts and compromise, and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.”
So, the selection game now in "primary" season is to diagnose then select the lesser psychotic (The Elections of Pontius Pilots, 2, 3, 4, 5).
It is probably because they all want to be an exploding star, which they know even less about.
