Oh. My. Heck.
I just looked at the various pages of those seeking the GOP nomination for the 6th District Congressional seat in Maryland, and I cannot believe this bunch of morons trying to unseat octogenarian Roscoe Bartlett. He once said he'd only serve three terms in Congress; how's that working out? Most of the time, I like Bartlett, but he's got to retire. When he speaks, he sounds like he has a perpetual need to clear his throat.
Here are your soon-to-be also-rans:
Tom Croft says he'll only vote what his constituents say via the Internet, even if it goes against his principles. Stand for nothing, and you'll fall for anything. Next.
Joe Krysztoforski opposes the war in Iraq and is pro-death in the womb. Next.
John Kimble is anti-illegal immigrant and a gun rights advocate, but he's also a trial lawyer and ACLU member and supports "gay marriage." Next.
And one-time Cumberland mayor Frank Nethken, who says he was told by the Lord to run, has dropped out and moved to Arizona. I may vote for him anyway; he's still on the ballot.
Hey, Democrats, I think you have a good shot at picking up this seat and making this state an even deeper shade of blue than it already is. Andrew Duck came mighty close last time, and as long as he holds off former Frederick mayor Jennifer Dougherty, he could find himself in Washington next winter.
