Getting the Message on OIP Derangement Syndrome

This week’s study in OIP Derangement Syndrome is Rep. Jack Kingston of Georgia, one of three members of Congress running for the Republican nomination for that state’s Senate seat.

As Talking Points Memo reported, Kingston’s campaign released an ad featuring a Barack Obama impersonator supposedly leaving a voicemail for Kingston saying he doesn’t want the man in the Senate.

And here I thought we learned from Clint Eastwood in 2012 that having angry conversations with a wholly imaginary “President Obama” simply makes one look like a crazy person.

But the really crazy part is that in this Senate race Kingston is being attacked from the right.
