Why Republicans Scare the Crap Out of Me

Paul Broun is a Republican Congressman from Georgia.  He is a medical doctor.  He said the following at a town hall meeting (I wish I had a source for this),
I tell ya, we've got some new problems in Washington. Big problems. Just today, Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta said people in America are not eating enough fruits and vegetables. They want to give all the power to the federal government to force you to eat more fruits and vegetables. This is what the federal, CDC, they gonna be calling you to make sure you eat fruits and vegetables, every day. This is socialism of the highest order!
Are you kidding me?  This is demagogy at its finest, and worst.   He is a doctor.  You know, good nutrition all that stuff.  It's socialism I tell you!  Of the highest order!  Next thing you know, the government is going to push clean water down our throats!  Fucking CDC Nazi's!

Good grief.  I have more guanophrenic Republicans for later.
