Is it Right-wing nut or Right wingnut?
I can't decide. Were these people crazy before the Right-wing emergence and it just fit their personalities, or were they truly neocons who are becoming wackier by the day?

I had a guy chase me for two blocks just so he could honk and give me the "thumbs down" for my Kerry sticker. Wait til tomorrow when I add the "Defend America Defeat Bush" and "11/02/04 . . .the end of an error" stickers.

I don't own a gun, but I'm not so sure we shouldn't consider arming ourselves as we get closer to the election. (only half-kidding)
But I'm happy to say my Buddhist teachings are working, I resisted the urge to return the guy's thumb gesture with one consisting of another finger and simply smiled and waived.

I'm really getting tired of this shit though :grr:
And I'm not gonna take it anymore!

5. "Wingnuts" implies right-wing -- and, guess it's not p.c., but...
growing up, even though we attended services at a Methodist Church at least once a week, my mother called those now called the "religious right" --"religious NUTS."

4. "Right-wing" nut otherwise
there's and implication that "right" (as in correct) could be implied. Also, there's no confusion that they're crazy.
