Silly season is again arriving early heralded by a Republican parade of very serious, self-important, self-obsessed, publicly very pious and righteous, nearly all white men (seriously, folks, Carly Fiorina has zero chance). Aided and abetted by truckloads of billionaire money they're out there in front of every group of possible supporters (or donors) they can find boasting about how conservative they are, blowing the dog whistle every time they can, beating up on the poor and disenfranchised at every opportunity, creating a plethora of imaginary boogeymen that only they can defeat (so hurry and donate!), and vacuuming up every nickel they can get suckers to cough up on their behalf.
Some of them even believe part of the crap they're spewing; others are just in it for the money and attention. Some of them just want a Fox or RW radio gig, but all of them want to gather a great big email list to solicit money not just for their campaigns, but to sell later to an endless series of fearmongers or snake oil hucksters to mine for suckers.
They also have something else in common: very thin skins.
