With all the enthusiasm for putting an end to the joke that is Charles Taylor, it's easy to forget that there are other odious characters in the Republican tent worth keeping an eye on. There's Robin "Flip Flop" Hayes, of course, who has stood by the Bush Family Crime ring through sick and sin - cashing in his votes for favor with Herr Rove. And then there's this nutcase who's challenging Brad Miller for no discernible reason except to feed his pathetic ego and spew hate. That Republicans would be comfortable with such a cretin in their ranks is embarrassing enough. But to have a cretin who produced this commercial (you may have to scroll down) is truly creepy -- which is all you need to know about the state of the Republican party these days.
So far, NOBODY is actually endorsing VJ for anything besides Lunatic of the Month Club. So stop by and show Vernon some love. A few visits from BlueNC will almost certainly double his website traffic.
The guy certainly is creepy.
We need to keep a close eye on this. History is full of batshit insane people rising to power while sane majority's attention is elsewhere. I seriously doubt Robinson has a prayer in this race, but we shouldn't allow him any uncontested points, either. Thanks for keeping us on this, Anglico!
