Imagine a world where people who sound like psychiatric patients off their meds run for political office and frequently get elected. This is the new subnormal of politics, brought to you by the Grand Old Party. The latest example we have to illustrate this principal is evangelical wingnut and professed prophetic dreamer Rachel Hamm, who wants to be California’s next secretary of state. Hamm wants you to know that she is so powerful with her dreaming skills that she is in awe of herself. We are in awe too, but for very different reasons.
Rachel Hamm, a GOP candidate for secretary of state in California, claims that she had a dream that someone was going to break into her house and murder her. She brags that she prayed it away and instead her neighbor, who was a witch, was murdered. pic.twitter.com/Q6mB3xmLmD

That must be some neighborhood she lives in, with both evangelical wingnuts and self-proclaimed witches living a few doors away, and the witches get burned at the stake, house, household goods and all. Interesting to know in 2021.
Now presupposing that this event even occurred, and considering the source I don’t think we should take anything for granted, who in her right mind would publicly disparage a neighbor who just got murdered, and whose home was perhaps destroyed by arson, much less BRAG about being the responsible party? I say “responsible party” because she says that the evil was directed at her and then she bounced it back into the universe to happen to somebody else. She has no empathy for this tragedy, it’s all about her. Has it occurred to her that she’s a sociopath, do you suppose?
This is how psych patients talk and this is how evangelical wingnuts talk as well. What the two groups have in common is that they live in a reality of their own creation. Just as the author of a work of fiction can imbue a character with supernatural powers at will, so can these folks.
California would be better off falling into the ocean than having this loon anywhere near its government, seriously.
