It is now being reported: “An amendment proposed by Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist would change the name of the Pentagon to “The Ronald Reagan Defense Building.”

This is the Senate Majority Leader, for crying out loud.

What next? Rename the White House to the Reagan House? Capitol Hill to Reagan Hill? That’s not too far off from renaming the Pentagon.

Even Freepers, in their ultraconservative go-crazy discussion forums, are starting to say “Whoa, Nelly!“:

“OK, no, I’m sorry. Let’s not go nuts here, people.”

“I agree- the Republican Party is dangerously close to outdoing the Paul Wellstone crowd.”

“this is nuts. and it shows how shallow the ‘leaders’ of our party in the Senate are. somebody from the white house better call this idiot, fast.”

“Why not just rename the whole country. United States is uninspired and characterless for a name of a country. Name it Reagania.”

When the far-right-wingers start saying the GOP is going too far, it just might be time for them to call it quits.
