Again, the bipartidary system of the US is to blame here. Even if you're slightly to the right wing, you're automatically connected to the crazies because that's the only way you can go without having to go with the left wing. If there were 2 or more parties per wing, the extremists would wither away and the moderates would finally be heard more than the them like it should be.
