On a day when one GOP candidate endorsed the origin myth of Psychlos, I’d be remiss not to draw your attention to the candidate who thought that ferret owners were psycho:

“There is something deranged about you.… The excessive concern you have for ferrets is something you should examine with a therapist.… There is something really, really very sad about you.… This excessive concern with little weasels is a sickness.… You should go consult a psychologist.… Your compulsion about—your excessive concern with it is a sign that there is something wrong in your personality.… You have a sickness, and I know it’s hard for you to accept that.… You need help.”

And yet, he’s a plausible presidential candidate. I love America.
