13. Yeah, they've just gone a bit beyond the point where she's comfortable...

...with them. When they were the Tea Party--when they were being transported from protest to protest on Koch-brothers-funded tour buses--and acted like more "normal" reactionaries, dressed up in tricorner hats and Pilgrim outfits, they were fine. Once they got their own nutty ideas and started making Q websites (after they got booted from Reddit) and talking about how Da Jooz Be Controlin' Da World, that was a bridge too far.

I'm willing to cut Sippy Cupp some slack here; I believe she is disturbed by these reactionary and fascist movements. But she doesn't seem to get that what happened is that the GOP lost control of its base. The constant push toward one-upmanship on the part of everyone from their candidates to radio talkers led directly to this. How could she not see this coming nearly two decades ago with Michael Savage et al?
