More Don Yelton videos: We could’ve seen the Daily Show train wreck coming

While it was obviously the right thing for state GOP leaders to sack party official Don Yelton in the wake of his off-the-rails performance on The Daily Show the other day,  a quick Internet search reveals that there was plenty of reason to expect his comically deranged and hate-tinged flameout for some time — enough, indeed, to make a body wonder why Claude Pope didn’t officially repudiate the man years ago.

As you can see in the video immediately below, Yelton actually testified before the General Assembly on the voter suppression bill earlier this year and displayed a coherence about on par with his Daily Show rant.

But before that, Yelton had made numerous recorded speeches and even hosted a public access TV show in Asheville called “Citizens Speak.” Click here to peruse a veritable cavalcade of craziness.

    Thank god for Republicans like Don Yelton who are willing to tell the world just how corrupt minded the GOP is.

    What are we telling our kids by having all these schools? That education is just another different day thing.

    What are we telling our kids by having law enforcement officers? That a safe city is just another different day thing.

    This would be funny if it weren’t such a dangerous thing to have a national political party that is made up of such people.
