Many conservatives have well and truly lost their marbles.  And presumably the only way to disabuse them of some of their folly is to hand them the reins of power, but even when we do that in places like Kansas, they seem oblivious to the error of their thinking.

All that is left is to relegate their ideas to the same ash heap of history to which we consigned Leninism and Maoism.
