Perennial SW Idaho candidate, Harley Brown, has a website which caught the attention of one of my favorite internet sites, Wonkette, which specializes in political snark. Needless to say Wonkette had a field day with Larry "super tuber" Craig. Right now Idaho provides a target rich environment for lampooning with the onset of the Republican primary season and each candidate trying to secure Idaho's prodigious wingnut vote. Harley Brown, this time a candidate for Idaho's first congressional district, does not disappoint starting with his slogan: "Nuke Their Ass and Take Their Gas". It goes down hill from there.
He loves guns.
Gun control is hitting your target
If the government wants to take my guns, they can have the bullets first.
Proud LIFE member of the NRA
He hates teh Gay
Keep the Queens out of the Marines
And he really really hates the government.
I believe that well over 90% of what the Feds do today is unconstitutional and should be eliminated by We the People. The sooner the better!
I declare the US Tax code should be scuttled and declared unconstitutional on the legal grounds of being Void for Vagueness.
And he loves God
I was also a Taxicab driver and evangelist in Boise, ID where I led approximately 1,000 lost souls to the Lord Jesus Christ: Drunks and Winos, Hookers and Strippers, Bums, and Homeless; Hippies and Rainbow people, Bikers, and Villains, Truckers and Construction workers, Businessmen and Proletarians, psychos and weirdo's, homos and lesbians; even some people who looked normal and smelled nice.
I considered myself the “intake manifold to the Kingdom of God”
And he hates liberals
Now that I am retired I have an intense burning desire to destroy all the works of those Progressive Liberal Politicians in Washington D.C. whom I brand as vile domestic enemies to the country and Constitution we’re SWORN TO DEFEND.
He has a whole page devoted to the wingnut panacea that is birtherism. However, like most of the mentally ill, Harley is not without his moments of clarity: "Congress needs someone crazy like me to combat their insanity." Look for Harley to get noticed by Colbert, Stewart and/or Maher in the near future to be ensconced in the Idaho Hall of Shame. Look for all other candidates, in both parties, to attempt to outdo him.
Update 4/21 TPM picked him up, which Popkey wrote about here. At this rate he should be on Letterman by next week.
