It's (Republican) Friday, You Bastards
It's time to bounce our boobies!
That's probably my subconcious reason for having picked Friday as the one day of the week where we celebrate a few good Republicans.
The only problem is, I don't consider this week's selection either a boob or a booby. In fact, he's just a Bob!
Meet Bob Kelleher from Montana!
Kelleher won the Republican (June 3, 2008) primary for the U.S. Senate. Despite a history of running as a Democrat and a Green several years ago, Big Bob got 'er done as a GOP-er in a crowded field and is
His slogan is
Working For Montanans, Not Lobbyists
- wants a “nonviolent revolution” to overthrow the foundation of American government.
- favors enormous, FDR-style government work programs to reduce poverty.
- he wants to nationalize the American oil and gas industries.
- supports government-run, socialized medicine.
Understandably, Big Bob is a pariah to the Montana State Republican Party, who can be counted on for alloting Kelleher less than $1.00 for his campaign funds.
Why has he been able to get as far as he has? What does this mean?
Is the world, as we have come to know it, changing?
