Do Republicans seem... strange to anyone else?

Edit: I just wanted to add right up top that I'm not falling all over myself for Democrats either, but the level of Republican terribleness just has me really confused.

I'm no fan of your average Republican, obviously. During my childhood and early teen years I payed no attention whatsoever to politics. I didn't know what a Republican was, what liberal meant, nothing. My sad introduction to Politics happened to be in the form of George W Bush. Watching him led me from indifference to hate. I hated that guy. What an idiot, almost all of his decisions made things worse. A lot of things he said were either incredibly wrong or just plain stupid. I didn't understand how something like that could be elected... then re-elected.

Then came McCain, a "meh" Republican who picked perhaps one of the worst running mates in Presidential history, Sarah Palin. "Wow" I thought, "They actually managed to find someone dumber than Dubya, amazing." Fortunately he got absolutely trounced, but his decision to choose Palin as his VP was confusing. She wasn't just bad, she was fucking terrible. Since then, it's been one racist quote, homophobic quote, sexist quote and/or absolutely mind bogglingly dumb idea or decision after another. I truly believe that Republicans are getting worse at an incredible pace.

This leads me back to my initial thought, it seems... strange now. Not bad, not terrible or dumb just, odd. Republicans have spent so much time trying to put the square peg into the round hole that I'm genuinely not sure if they're morons or are just screwing with us at this point. I'm not suggesting any kind of conspiracy, just an observation. I honestly don't understand why they're doing the things they're doing. If it was a fourth, maybe, of what it is, I'd say they just have some idiots running their show. But this much... terribleness? I don't know. I'm just confused by it all.

Just look at some of this shit.

And this.
And this.
And this.
And this.
And this.
And this... okay, I'll stop now.

But, seriously though, what's going on? Do Republicans all share the same type of glue that they pass around and take turns sniffing? Are they trying to lower the bar so much that when the first semi-intelligent Republican comes along he gets voted into unanimously... okay, that's kind of a conspiracy, but I'm out of ideas at this point.
