The man is so deranged that he’s just not worth wasting brain space on, but the dozen or so remaining Times’ readers have elevated his latest hallucinations to the top of the “most emailed to Eskimos” category, so here’s Powerline’s rebuttal:
Rich suggests that the answer lies in Stack’s online political screed:
“But he did leave behind a manifesto whose frothing anti-government, anti-tax rage overlaps with some of those marching under the Tea Party banner.”
