Abandon all sense, ye who enter here

Two examples from just the last news cycle of how the current Republican party has passed beyond the reach of satire, not to mention sanity.

First up is Newt Gingrich:

“I have two grandchildren — Maggie is 11, Robert is 9,” Gingrich said at Cornerstone Church here. “I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time they’re my age they will be in a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists and with no understanding of what it once meant to be an American.”

A country run by secular atheists who are also radical Islamists. Got ya.

Next up is this bit of insanity: Santorum blames abortion for Social Security woes

“The social security system in my opinion is a flawed design, period. But, having said that, the design would work a lot better if we had stable demographic trends. … The reason social security is in big trouble is we don’t have enough workers to support the retirees. Well, a third of all the young people in America are not in America today because of abortion, because one in three pregnancies end in abortion.”

Reread that last sentence again. If it makes sense to you, reduce your medication.
