This is what happens when you completely destroy your own credibility within your own base, GOP leaders

I don't necessarily fault people who are going for more extreme candidates, and in some cases, candidates with a case of teh crazeepants.  This is exactly what happens when your party leadership destroys its own credibility.  The guy might be a full on crazypants like the state GOP leadership states he is, but people aren't going to take their word for it, because they've been lied to and burned one too many times by the Republican Party. 

That said, we're going to have to see what happens, if either the leadership unfucks itself and starts making real efforts to regain the trust of the base (not seeing signs that this is happening), or if the base gets more active and more savvy as far as recruiting, funding and choosing candidates.
