A lot of Tea partiers are insane. When Wolf Blitzer asked if they should just let that guy die (with no insurance) and some were yelling Yes....that tells you something about the atmosphere in that room. In my lifetime i have never seen such a polorized society as it currently is in the US. Each candidate is walking on egg shells on everything they say, more than ever before. They can't offend the far right wacko's and Tea partiers but if they're too radically right they'll never get the independants, moderates and will lose many minority votes. And the blatant lies being thrown around is complete horseshit. Yesterday, Perry was saying that Obama's stimulus package has created zero jobs. Now, anyone with half a brain knows that's a blatant lie, but it's becoming the norm now and more extreme than ever.
