How Crazy are Republicans - FDR was a commie edition

I've decided to start up a new occasional blog feature, How Crazy are Republicans. This was inspired by Representative Paul Brown of Georgia who said this on the house floor:
Original intent was the general welfare, the general welfare of the nation, not welfare of individuals. We've developed this big welfare system in this country. It all started, in earnest, with President Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt just exploded the size and scope of the government with his New Deal. Both progressives. Both had socialist beliefs. In fact, Franklin Delano Roosevelt sent his advisors, his close friends, his cabinet people to go visit with Stalin in communist Russia to study what he was doing, what Stalin was doing there so that FDR could replicate it here in the United States. And he did everything he possibly could to do so.
There is more crazy. Check out the video below (thanks to Media Matters Political Correction)

If you see a crazy Republican you think would be perfect for this feature let us know in the comments.
