"Illusion is the first of all pleasures"

"To treat your facts with imagination is one thing, but to imagine your facts is another."  ~John Burroughs

So. Last night I finally gave in to my probably fatal curiosity and watched part of a Republican debate.

Honest to God, I thought I was viewing the Fox News version of the Colbert Report. The sad part is, they're totally serious.

A bigger train wreck I have never seen unfold. If any of these people are elected to the Presidency, it will be an unmitigated disaster for this country and the world.

When Michelle Bachmann declared herself a "serious candidate for President" and asserted that her statements were "factually accurate" (not that Newtie wasn't being condescending, but come on), the planet shook on its axis.

One could wish the multiverse did in fact exist, so I could be spun into a universe far, far away from this madness.
