Well, the Congress might be on vacation but that doesn't mean there's any shortage of wingnuttery from the right. From Countdown's Worst Persons, Keith's winner takes the cake on amping up the crazy from the right.

GOP candidate calls for internment camps for ‘people that snuck into the country.’:

Speaking at a rally sponsored by Glenn Beck’s 9/12 Project, GOP state house candidate in Florida, Marg Baker, endorsed building concentration camps for undocumented immigrants:

We can follow what happened back in the 40s or 50s. I was just a little girl in Miami, and they built camps for the people that snuck into the country, because they were illegal. They put them in the camps, and they shipped them back. We can do that.

Runners up were Rush Limbaugh -- Limbaugh says "the top colleges are the functional equivalent of leadership schools from totalitarian nations"...

...and Grandpa McGrumpy promising to be as petulant as ever when it comes to working across the aisle. So much for that "Maverick" b.s. he thought we were supposed to be buying into -- McCain Promises He Won’t Work With Democrats On Immigration If He Is Re-Elected.

Note to President Obama... these people are not your friends. Quit kissing their butts when all they do is spit in your face.
