Crazy Moments in American History

I don’t mean the crazy stuff that’s happened to us, like Pearl Harbor or 9/11, both of which we can all agree, crazy. Instead, I’m talking about moments when the crazy level in America (a measurement of our citizens’ craziness) goes off the charts. Just this month, we’ve had the Birthers and the Health Care Town Hall Shouters, who liken Obama to Hitler because they think Obama’s a socialist and Hitler was a National Socialist (a movement which was actually fascist, but hey, words are confusing). Oh, and Sarah Palin.

So, there’s three. McCarthyism was pretty batshit as well. Also, waterbeds. What’s your vote?
