This is a perfect matchup. Dick Cheney, who once shot a friend in the face while hunting, against Wayne LaPierre, who continues to defend Cheney's Second Amendment right to shoot friends in the face.

Cheney has beaten John McCain, Grover Norquist, and Marco Rubio on his path to the Crazy 8. LaPierre has taken down Mitch McConnell, Eric Cantor, and Paul Ryan. These guys are old school Republicans, but even though they've been around forever, they are proof that the GOP has an eternal fountain of youth—at least when it comes to wingnuttery.

The winner of this matchup will proceed to the Freakshow Four. Voting ends Monday morning at 8:30 AM ET, after which we'll announce the winners of this round. The finals will begin on Saturday and conclude on the following Monday.

As with previous rounds, you're voting for whomever you believe makes for a better poster-child for Republican craziness. That doesn't necessarily need to mean you're voting for the craziest person, because you might also consider their prominence and influence as well as their association with the GOP. It's entirely up to you.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
