Who's the radical?

First, the GOP should concede that it does have a few quirky candidates running around the country who lack the political sophistication of, say, an Alan Grayson or a Maxine Waters.

Are these Republican oddballs a bit batty? For sure. But unlike, say, the “stimulus” legislation, a plan to uncover the Hawaiian bunker with the president’s Indonesian passport probably won’t cost taxpayers $1 trillion and millions of jobs.

What’s worse, after all, suffocating the economy or being a bit cautious?

Also, please keep this in mind: Nationalizing health care is not radical. Tripling the budget deficit in two years isn’t, either.
