In an oft-repeated quote (the origin is uncertain, but let’s attribute it to Mr. Spock) it’s observed that “in an insane world, a sane man must appear insane”.
And by that definition, there’s a lot of “sane” out there.

In a discussion in the aftermath of Bowe Bergdahl’s being charged with desertion, the reality-community based anchor on CNN offered this reaction.

And then there’s MSNBC’s assessment of Senator Ted Cruz’s post- 9/11 conversion to country music”
