It's just a short step from believing "The Flintstones" is a docudrama - for she's a Young Earth Creationist who believes the Earth is only 6,000 years old - to believing that "Pinky and the Brain" is too.
She's not the only Right-Wing Politician whose views can charitably be described as "eccentric" though. There's also the (unfortunately not inimitable) Sally Kern.
Ho-kayyy.... So let's take a look on the Left. The Far Left. Until the Tea Bag movement started, the only credible third force in US politics, the Greens. And their Leader, Cynthia McKinney.
There are two possible conclusions: the first is that some US politicians have a few roos loose in the top paddock, so to speak. In fact, whole mobs of them.
The second, which I think is far more likely, is that they're telling the rubes what they want to hear. Nah, that's more of a Shellbyville idea....
