Another Republican debate last night....

From what I have gathered from my normal sources, it seems they were all in fine form last night. They all had to show they believed in the Christian God, which is a good trick for a Mormon. Everyone is against immigrants, it seems, although non one ever brought up the subject that it is the pro-Big-Business end of the Republican party who wants to keep all the Mexicans in the country so they don't have to pay people the minimum wage or give anyone health care benefits. And Wolf Blitzer spiced up the evening when he asked if it was acceptable to drop a nuclear bomb on Iran. But, since they were only talking "hypothetically" and it was only going to be a tactical nuke, not a "big, wipe 'em off the face of the Earth" nuke, then I guess this is an acceptable subject.

Does anyone else think all of this is surreal? How can anyone, much less candidates for the office of the President of the United States, actually be discussing this issue with any sort of seriousness at all?

I am really worried that if one of these nutjobs actually wins the presidency, we are all in very big trouble.
