John Dean (of Watergate fame) has posted his view of the crazy senatorial race in Alaska, where the Tea Party favorite Joe Miller defeated the sitting Republican senator Lisa Murkowski in the GOP primary. Miller's behavioral in this campaign and previously would make a great subject of their own, but fortunately he seems to be self-destructing now, leaving the question whether Murkowski can win a write-in campaign against the Democratic candidate, Scott McAdams. One of Dean's more telling comments:
It is my view that approximately twenty-five percent of the voting population is insane. I do not exaggerate when I say that, and I do not use this analogy to make any comparison with Miller, but this insane element of our population would, without hesitation, vote for Adolph Hitler. Miller will carry these nutcases without a problem. But he needs more than twenty-five percent.
