    Special to CNN

    We’re trying out a new segment on “American Morning” called “Wingnuts of the Week.” It builds on a simple premise – the far-right and the far-left are equally insane.
    What’s a Wingnut? It’s someone on the far-right wing or far-left wing of American politics – the professional partisans and the unhinged activists – the folks who always try to divide rather than unite. In our polarized two party system, they have disproportionate influence and too often define the terms of debate. With this segment, we’re going to try and take that power back.

    In this first week, we’re naming two charter members of the Wingnut Hall of Fame who recently reared their heads in the news once again. We want to be equal opportunity offenders, punching both left and right, so both are members of Congress – one current and one former – and both are defended in their respective echo chambers on the far-right and far-left.

    So drum roll, please: The Wingnuts of the Week for our inaugural edition are Michele Bachman and Cynthia McKinney.

    Some thing new CNN is trying out to try and look less far right in their slant.

    Should start it off with their own host and reporters.

    And I thought a Wing Nut was a Red Wings fan with a funny hat.

    Making McKinney wingnut of the weeks is like shooting fish in a barrell.

    That is wrong. Everyone knows that Conservatives are wingnuts and liberals are moonbats.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
