In Sunday’s New York Times, Frank Rich tied together the anti-IRS suicide pilot, the Tea Parties and the Republicans into what he called the Axis of the Obsessed and Deranged.

Speaking of which, if he’s minded to do a follow-up, how about this?

Francisco Lotero, 56, and Miriam Coletti, 23, shot their daughter and her toddler brother before killing themselves.

Their son Francisco, two, died instantly after being hit in the back.

However, their unnamed daughter cheated death after the bullet from her father’s handgun missed her vital organs.

Why would anyone do such a thing? Well, according to the suicide note:

Her parents said they feared the effects of global warming . . .

So how about it, Frankie? As an expert on the obsessed and deranged, you’re just the man for the job. And it’s not like it’s the first time, or anything.
