Nutjob of the Day: Insane Woman Asks Rick Santorum Longest, Most Incoherent Question Ever

Rick Santorum may have said some pretty crazy stuff in the past, but that’s nothing compared to this woman.

Santorum was taking questions at the South Carolina National Security Action Summit last weekend, when a lady stepped up to the microphone and went off on the most insane rant ever.

Did you know President Obama the “Communist dictator” once tried to nuke Charleston? Yup, according this retired school teacher it’s totally true.

“He’s trying to destroy the United States,” she says. “The Congress knows this. What kind of games is the Congress of the United States playing with the citizens of the United States?”

She doesn’t seem to ever really get to the meat of her question and eventually they cut her off. But it takes a while, and Santorum just stands there pretending to listen.

“I’m not a sitting member of the Senate,” he says afterwards. “So I’m not taking blame for any of that stuff.”

Hate Mail of the Day: President Obama Reads Mean Tweets on Jimmy Kimmel Live

President Obama receives his fair share of criticism online, but he’s embracing all the hate in a new edition of “Mean Tweets” on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Watch him react to a #ThanksObama and someone who does’t approve of his dad-jeans style.

“Is there any way we could fly Obama to some golf course halfway around the world and just leave him there?” writes one girl.

“I think that’s a great idea,” he says.

You can also watch Kimmel’s post-Mean Tweets interview with Obama below, in which he says he didn’t think those messages were very mean at all.

“You should see what the Senate says about me,” he says.

He also talks about why he still has a BlackBerry and how he doesn’t actually use Twitter himself.

Politics of the Day: Don Young Jokes That Wolves Would Fix Homeless Problem

Rep. Don Young of Alaska certainly has problems, but wolves aren’t one of them.

At a House Natural Resources Committee hearing this week, Young was complaining about how members of Congress were rallying together to help protect the gray wolf, when they don’t have to deal with them on a regular basis like he does.

“How many of you have got wolves in your district?” he asked. “None. None. Not one.”

And then, likely due to a full moon, he offered up this completely insane proposal.

“I’d like to introduce them to your district,” he said. “You wouldn’t have a homeless problem anymore.”

A spokesperson for Young later clarified to the Washington Post that the “analogy was purposely hyperbolic to stress the point that these predators pose serious threats to wildlife management and their listing has damaging impacts to local communities.”

Alaska has “the largest remaining population of gray wolves in the United States,” according to Defenders of Wildlife.
