Hatefest at Madison Square - The RNC, indeed, redefines the catchy term used by Republicans. Paul Krugman writes on why the Republicans are just so enRAGEd. He suggests they're compensating for something ;)

"I don't know where George Soros gets his money," one man said. "I don't know where -- if it comes from overseas or from drug groups or where it comes from." George Soros, another declared, "wants to spend $75 million defeating George W. Bush because Soros wants to legalize heroin." After all, a third said, Soros "is a self-admitted atheist; he was a Jew who figured out a way to survive the Holocaust."

They aren't LaRouchies -- they're Republicans.

The suggestion that Soros, who has spent billions promoting democracy around the world, is in the pay of drug cartels came from Dennis Hastert, the speaker of the House. After standing by his remarks for several days, Hastert finally claimed that he was talking about how Soros spends his money, not where he gets it.
