Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in defense of Sarah Palin’s use of this “crosshairs map” for “targeting” Democrats and for fundraising purposes for the Republican Party, on March 25, 2010. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot yesterday was on the map, and several of the other Democrats also received threats. McCain also defends Palin’s corresponding Twitter comment: “Commonsense Conservatives & lovers of America: ‘Don’t Retreat, Instead – RELOAD!'”

“I have seen the rhetoric of targeted districts as long as I’ve been in politics,” he replied. “Please. This is — any threat of violence is terrible, but to say that there is a targeted district or that we ‘reload’ or go back in to the fight again, please…Those are fine. They’re used all the time.”

“Those words have been used throughout of my political career,” McCain added. “There are targeted districts, and there are areas that we call battleground states, and so please, that rhetoric and kind of language is just part of the political lexicon. There is no place for threats of violence or anything else, but to say that someone is in a battleground state is not originated today.”

“Maybe it has (caused concern), and we condemn any violence, any threats of violence,” responded McCain. “But I’ve heard all of that language throughout my political career.”

Meghan McCain appeared this morning on ABC’s “This Week” with Christiane Amanpour. I’m not a fan of Ms. McCain’s and my first instinct when I see her on television is to turn it off. However, something she said actually made sense and I was surprised to find myself in agreement with her.

McCain was criticizing the Republican Senate candidate from Delaware, Christine O’Donnell. She referred to her as a “nut-job,” among other things, in a roundtable discussion on whether O’Donnell is fit to run for office.

“My problem is that, no matter what, Christine O’Donnell is making a mockery of running for public office,” McCain said on Sunday. “She has no real history, no real success in any kind of business.”

Can’t argue with her there. O’Donnell is certainly making a mockery of running for office. She’s also made a mockery of herself. From her past appearances with Bill Maher on “Politically Incorrect” criticizing masturbation and pre-marital sex, her own “experiments” with witchcraft, “dabbling” in Hare Krishna and Buddhism, to her disbelief of evolution, but belief in cloning of mice with human brains.

While she may have no experience in business, she certainly seems to know how to make a quick buck out of being famous for no other reason than being famous for running for office. (Just like Meghan McCain, minus the running for office part.)

Continuing the attack, McCain added that “what [O’Donnell’s success] sends to my generation is: one day you can just wake up and run for Senate, no matter how [much of] a lack of experience you have. And it scares for me for a lot of reasons. I just know, in my group of friends, it turns people off because she’s seen as a nutjob.”

A “turn off” in your group. Really Meghan? To the “group” of us living in the real world, it’s a lot more than a “turn off.” It’s a horror show.

About that little matter of “making a mockery of running for public office” McCain speaks of? Yes, that does seem to be the latest trend these days, where one “just wakes up and decides to run for office” and run, they do. No matter that they have absolutely no qualifications and no knowledge of what that office is for, much less how to govern. Just make it up as you go along! Everybody’s doing it!

Let me think, when exactly did this become a trend, or become “vogue” as Meghan might say?

Well, I believe that would have been back when “Daddy” McCain just woke up and decided to pick Sarah Palin as a running mate in a last-ditch effort to save himself while he continued to make a mockery of running for President one last time.

And thanks to John McCain, we’ve been stuck with Palin ever since. Sarah Palin is the gift that keeps on giving. She seems to be the sleeping beast that woke an entire fringe of borderline nuts who think merely breathing or being over 18 is a qualification to run for office.

It’s similar to the old practice of experts as guests on the Sunday news shows that has given way to guests who have an agenda or celebrities who fancy themselves as experts because of who their parents are. “Experts” who find themselves shocked, shocked! that “nut-jobs” like Christine O’Donnell would dare to think they could run, and win a Senate seat.

Does that ring a bell Meghan?

Sure, whatever.

If you live in Florida, felt an odd vibe and heard a strange noise on Wednesday, fear not. It was just Sarah Palin gracing Florida with her presence, and that giant sucking sound you heard was politicians running for cover as she handed out endorsements.

Palin attended a dinner with conservatives at The Breakers in Palm Beach, and stopped at the headquarters of NewsMax along the way.

She then took to her “editorial” page on Facebook to write her formal endorsements of Florida candidates (or someone did), while lecturing Floridians on the importance of our elections, and “informing” us on who to vote for and why. Sarah has spoken.

I hate to break it to Sarah, but the majority of people in Florida would never take the advice of someone who probably couldn’t find our state on a map, and who was elected Governor of Alaska merely because she was “not the other guy” who was running, not to mention that she quit mid-term to profit from her latest failure as a Vice Presidential candidate, and she imagines that she sees world leaders peering at her over her front porch.

Hallucinations aside, Palin is probably unaware of her bottom of the barrel favorability polls and that even people like whacky Carly “Barbara-Boxer’s-hair-is-just-SO-yesterday-and-did-I-mention-I-also-killed-Hewlett-Packard?” Fiorina and her job outsourcing cohort Meg Whitman are trying desperately to flee an endorsement from her, “you betcha!'” Even crazy radical Tea Bagger candidate  Joe Miller, who has trouble hitting the “send button” on his e-mails, wouldn’t give her a “Presidentially qualified” endorsement beyond acknowledging that, while she is breathing, hey, anythings possible!

Sarah, or her Facebook ghostwriter, had this advice for voters in Florida:

Had a great visit with Newsmax and the great folks in the Sunshine State yesterday! I spoke to Michael Reagan about his father’s grand legacy and to Dick Morris about not accepting what President Obama wants America to believe is some kind of “new normal” of economic woe.  I spoke to concerned Floridians about the energy in the Tea Party movement, and explained that I wrote a lot about it in my book, “America by Heart”; and I had the privilege of being interviewed on Sean Hannity’s show regarding voter turnout favoring conservatives this year.

Florida is fortunate to have great candidates willing to run and serve for all the right reasons. The repeal of the mother-of-all-unfunded mandates, Obamacare, is foremost on the minds of so many concerned Floridians, along with job, jobs, jobs. Thankfully they have candidates bold enough to promise to shake things up, put “We the People” first, and support free market and results-oriented solutions to all these challenges.  Please support these great Sunshine State candidates:

Rick Scott for Governor

Pam Bondi for Attorney General

Marco Rubio for U.S. Senate

Steve Southerland (FL-2)

Allen West (FL-22)

Sandy Adams (FL-24)

One thing we can thank Sarah for are those endorsements. One can only hope that those candidates sink like stones in the polls as others have after an official nod from Palin.

Just a couple of things I would like to point out here. Sarah doesn’t read, or she would have known that slimy prostitute aficionado and FOX commentator (go figure) Dick Morris whom she “had a great visit with” had a few words to say about one of those candidates himself, Rick Scott. Morris recently said that “Rick Scott is a criminal who belongs in jail, not in the governor’s office.” I may have to take a shower after admitting this, but I have to say I kind of agree with Morris on this one. (Shuddering.) Didn’t look that one up first did you Sarah?

As for others on the list, well it’s predictable because they’re all GOP-Tea Bagger candidates. Pam Bondi, probably endorsed because she’s also a woman, and although she has no children, she’s a “Momma Grizzly” by osmosis I guess?

Marco Rubio, well, he’s the male-Palin of Florida, and if you gave them the words “Reagan, tax cuts, common sense and conservative” perhaps between the two of them they could string a sentence together. Lets face it, she doesn’t know anything about them beyond the fact that they have an “R” behind their names on the ballot.

Allen West? He’s a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army. He also claims to have higher security clearance higher than the President in spite of facing a court martial over brutal interrogations, and he claims he threatened to kill a man in Iraq, among other things. Another “fact-check” Palin missed.

As for those “concerned Floridians” she spoke to? Well, she was preaching to the choir. “Obamacare” is actually popular among voters and hasn’t gone far enough, and on the “jobs, jobs, jobs?” Thanks to the stimulus, 153,000 jobs have been created or saved in Florida thanks to that stimulus. Sarah would also probably be surprised to find that 6,000 jobs have been created or saved as well in her home state of Alaska, if she could tear herself away from her home studio, her mirror and her ego long enough to study up on the subject.

And speaking of studying up, or in Sarah’s case, no studying at all, there’s a new article in the November Vanity Fair that, among other things, tells what the disastrous toll of picking Palin as his running mate took on John McCain. Never mind what it did to the country and the unqualified droves of potential candidates we find coming out of the woodwork now, thanks in part to the “gem” that was Sarah Palin, and to John McCain in 2008. A virtual tsunami of idiots who know nothing about governing, nor anything about the constitution they use as a talking point, just like Palin.

Yes, Sarah, we do have “candidates bold enough to promise to shake things up.” Unfortunately we don’t need things “shaken up.” We need people who can govern.

What we don’t need, or want, is your advice. On anything.

Pastor Terry Jones of the Dove World Church in Gainesville, Florida plans to go ahead with plans to host his “International Burn A Quran Day” on September 11, and has encouraged a worldwide Quran burning as well.

Yesterday Gen. David Petraeus, the top commander in Afghanistan stated that the Quran burning could put the lives of American troops in danger and damage the war effort. Confirming those fears, a rally in the capital yesterday had hundreds of Afghans denouncing the book burning and called for Barack Obama’s death, in spite of a statement put out by the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, saying it was “deeply concerned about deliberate attempts to offend members of religious or ethnic groups.”

While it is appalling enough that the church would do this, I think there is plenty of blame to be directed elsewhere as well. Let’s don’t forget how all this started in the first place. It began with the pseudo controversy over the “not a Mosque” which is “not at Ground Zero”, but rather nearby. It was merely another distraction manufactured by the GOP,  and encouraged by its 24-7 propaganda machine that has invested so heavily in the Republican party: FOX. The GOP has done almost nothing since the 2008 election of Obama beyond obstructing everything he and Democrats in Congress have tried to do to pull the country out of the eight year disaster of the Bush Administration. They also saw the “not a Mosque” as a great opportunity to score votes in the next election, since they have no plans of their own beyond tax cuts for the rich, repealing health care for Americans and shutting down the government. After all, it wouldn’t be the first time.

This is the party that jumped at the chance to take full advantage of the 9-11 attacks in the first place. This is the party that rolled out their little “color me terrified” threat level color chart every time an election was near, claiming there was “chatter” of upcoming terrorist attacks. Unconfirmed of course.

Politicizing terror has become a GOP policy. By the 2008 elections they even admitted it. In June of that year, in an article about John McCain, his strategist Charlie Black talked about the fact that a “good scare” probably helped save McCain in New Hampshire. From the Fortune article:

The assassination of Benazir Bhutto in December was an “unfortunate event,” says Black. “But his knowledge and ability to talk about it reemphasized that this is the guy who’s ready to be Commander-in-Chief. And it helped us.” As would, Black concedes with startling candor after we raise the issue, another terrorist attack on U.S. soil. “Certainly it would be a big advantage to him,” says Black.

Nice. So here we are again on the verge of an election. Since the GOP have absolutely nothing to offer voters except robbing them of health care and, yes, “transferring the wealth” into the pockets and bank accounts of the top 2% of Americans, while the rest fend for themselves when they shut down the Government. What to do? Why, play the terror card of course!

This from the party that perpetuates the myth that they, and ONLY they can keep the country safe. This from the party who adorn themselves with flag lapel pins, repeat the phrase “support the troops” and then do exactly the opposite. Pretending to find the “not a Mosque” so outrageous, while at the same time voting against health benefits for the very soldiers who fought their war of choice. They wring their hands while saying how dare anyone build such a thing “at Ground Zero?” (Except it isn’t “at Ground Zero” and again, it’s “not a Mosque.”) They’re absolutely indignant over a building nearby, but they also voted against health benefits for first responders to the terrorist attack itself. People who probably didn’t stop to think what religion the victims practiced before risking their lives to save them. No, health benefits for those first responders is a “socialist handout.” Outrageous! Who do they think they are?

No, we won’t hear anything about the GOP’s role in this controversy, but they will gladly line up to condemn the church and those who would burn the Quran, and the media will enable the charade as always.

In Florida candidates were asked early on what they thought of the “not a Mosque” controversy, and Republicans were more than happy to whip out their trusty, worn out script.

Marco Rubio, the GOP candidate for a U.S. Senate seat said:

“It is divisive and disrespectful to build a mosque next to the site where 3,000 innocent people were murdered at the hands of Islamic extremism.”

And he wasn’t finished there. He went on to say this, according to TPM:

Marco Rubio says that Muslims in other nations should look fondly on the United States as a bastion of religious tolerance following the Cordoba House flap.

That sounds familiar, doesn’t it? After all, the GOP also thinks that the people of Iraq should be thanking us for storming their country, killing their citizens and leaving behind a country in shambles. No, they didn’t attack us on 9-11, but no matter. The war was a gift, and to that end, the GOP says “you’re welcome.”

But back to Marco Rubio:

“I would point out to Muslims all over the world that America is one of the few countries on earth where every faith is represented,” Rubio said. “We have a long and cherished tradition of religious liberties and freedom, and none of that is being questioned in my mind.”

“The question” about the Cordoba House, Rubio added, “is whether it’s the right thing to do, not the legal thing to do. Building a mosque there has opened wounds, and it’s been hurtful. And that’s why I think it’s not the right place at the right time.”

That’s right Marco, nothing says “religious tolerance” like a good Quran burning. No one is questioning their right to build the “not a Mosque.”  It’s just a good old fashioned book burning, right?

What about that other “Independent” (wink, wink) candidate, Charlie Crist? Well, a month ago he said he supported the “not a Mosque” along with President Obama. Of course, at the time the GOP were also mocking him for it. But they were probably wearing flag pins while they mocked him, so….

Then we have the Republican candidate for Governor, Rick Scott. What are his views on the “not a Mosque not at Ground Zero?” Why, it’s “Obama’s Mosque!” “It’s being built just yards away from Ground Zero!” And that’s not all. The leader building the “not a Mosque” “refuses to admit that Muslim fanatics used terror tactics!” Scott says “the issue here is truth!” Well, he’s half right. It is an issue of truth. He’s merely distorting the truth for political purposes. In fact he’s so enjoying himself that he seems to think he’s running against Obama in his campaign ad about “Obama’s Mosque” rather than Governor of Florida. Some “outsider.” He fits right into the GOP mold like a suit of armor. Armor, incidentally, that Republicans were too cheap to spend money on to protect American soldiers in Iraq.

The GOP supports the troops, if by “support” you mean sending them off to a war based on a lie, while chanting the mantra “fight the terrorists over there, so we don’t have to fight them over here.” That, in itself is a whopper of a distortion of truth. They’re fighting them over there so the GOP can pillage here at home, and should you question them they will drape themselves in the flag and yell “fanatic Muslim!” until you surrender your civil rights, your wallet, your sons and daughters, and your vote. Whatever it takes. And the media will play right along. Dropping bombs aren’t the only way terrorists operate. They also take advantage of fear and propaganda. Sound familiar?

So while Gen. Petraeus states that this Quran burning in Gainesville endangers the lives of American troops as well as people all over the world, and perhaps here at home, Republicans can’t now hold themselves out on the sidelines and claim shock at the actions of a pastor who writes a book called “Islam Is Of The Devil.” They wanted fear and controversy, and they got it. And then some.

Let’s place blame everywhere that blame is due.

Last night in a speech at an anti-abortion event in Jacksonville, Sarah Palin came out swinging at Charlie Crist and his views on abortion:

The former Alaska governor and Republican presidential nominee John McCain’s running mate in 2008 also drew boos and laughter when she talked about Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who left the Republican Party and is now running for Senate as an independent.

“Unfortunately your Republican governor,” Palin began before pausing. “I don’t know if he wants to be one or is a Republican anymore.”

After the crowd booed, she continued.

“Your governor, he decided to veto this pro-life bill,” she said before drawing laughs by sarcastically pointing out that Crist still calls himself pro-life. “He forgot that when to comes protecting the sanctity of life actions speak louder than words.”

Crist didn’t immediately return a message left on his cell phone seeking comment.

It’s not too surprising he hasn’t commented. After all, back when Crist was an “official” Republican, and was passed over as a VP pick by John McCain, he had great things to say about Palin:

I think she’d do a great job. I mean, realize that, you know, she really is the only executive that’s running — the only one who has been the head of the government in Alaska. She’s held executive positions as a mayor, executive position as a governor. Made those kinds of decisions. I think she’s ready.

But, just like John McCain and the GOP back then, Crist was desperate enough to take a chance with an idiot like Sarah Palin in the Oval Office.

Well, Charlie Crist, the GOP, and Marco Rubio are all in pretty desperate places right now. Here’s what desperation will do to your judgement, and it’s pretty scary:

Over the weekend, President Obama announced that the Department of Energy will award $2 billion to solar energy companies to help speed the economic recovery and create jobs. It didn’t help when Obama thought he could gain Republican support for a new, comprehensive energy plan by going along in the near term with offshore drilling. This solar energy announcement comes at the same time that the GOP in Congress continue to filibuster over unemployment benefits.

Here in the “Sunshine State” one would think that solar energy would be a no brainer. Unfortunately the no brainers down here in Florida are the Republicans controlling our legislature.

Need evidence of that? Let’s review, shall we?

Up until recently, Florida kept offshore oil drilling off the table. Then thanks in part to John McCain and his dim-witted choice of a running mate Sarah Palin screaming her palms off, the new GOP chant became “Drill, Baby, Drill.” Why? Because that was about the only “platform” they could come up with, and their supporters at the convention all but responded with blood lust. So of course Florida Republicans were only too happy to jump in and say “Drill Here, Drill Now!”

Then came the BP oil gusher. To even the least aware, brain cell-lacking Jeb-Bot in existence just south of Valdosta it might occur that walking back this particular oil drilling policy might be a smart idea. And to that one person, the Florida GOP would say: “quit whining, Harvard!”

Of course, not many would have expected empty-headed Ken-doll candidate Marco Rubio to be deep enough to grasp such a concept, but even career GOP politicians who you would think would know better are steadfast against a special session to ban oil drilling. Even as oil washes up on our beaches, and tropical storms swirl and oil literally hits the fan. For crying out loud, even Charlie Crist figured it out. The RPOF crew? Not so much.

That brings us to solar energy. The state saw the light on that issue briefly. Once upon a time there was a rebate program for residents who invested in solar power for their homes. So people invested in solar energy. Too bad:

Take the Florida Solar Rebate Program, an initiative operating more on feel-good rhetoric than actual state revenue. The program owes almost 11,000 Floridians who believed state officials that they’d get a rebate for their investment in solar-powered water heaters and electric systems. The state marketed the benefits of solar energy, only to sell out a lot of its constituents with a bill of goods….

….The consumer end of the bargain is a bust, however. Property owners in Florida had been afforded incentives to invest in solar, but state lawmakers reneged on the deal by not funding the program.

The rationale behind the decision to let the rebates lapse is clear enough: Florida doesn’t have the money, pure and simple. When the economy improves, lawmakers can reconsider the solar-energy rebates and actually pay for the incentives. In straight English, it’s simply not a priority. And that’s unacceptable for a state that should be a leader in solar technology, not an also-ran.

That’s shortsighted and, in the long run, counterproductive. The rebate program holds the promise of creating a new industry in Florida, from solar panel installers to the very real possibility of attracting manufacturers of solar technology. It’s economic development that Florida could use, but won’t get if the state’s initial efforts in creating a meaningful rebate program remains an empty promise.

Silly solar power-investing tree huggers! If you have a diploma, Harvard or otherwise, the RPOF laughs in your face! ESPECIALLY if that diplomas is printed on recycled paper! Ha!

And you thought drilling for oil while skimmers “potentially” suck oil out of the Gulf, and out of work fishermen scrape it off the beaches without the benefit of the protective gear that would prevent them from needing the health care that you have vowed to take away from them (I’m talking to you Bill McCollum) that they may have still had  when BP put them out of work in the first place was counterproductive!

Sell you some swampland they will!

Oh, and about that excuse that those rebates will be but a figment of our imagination until the economy improves? Well, those same GOP leaders would also tell you that’s why your power bills keep climbing. It’s not their fault! It’s the economy, stupid! Right?

Four of the five members of our state Public Service Commission who voted against raising electric rates in January have now been canned by the Legislature.

Such a housecleaning is unprecedented in the three decades since the PSC switched from an elected body….

….Two of the four ousted members, David Klement and Ben Stevens, were appointed at the end of last year by Gov. Charlie Crist.

They voted against $1.5 billion in electric rate hikes before the state Senate voted on their confirmations. The Senate then rejected them on the pretext they were “unqualified.”

Last week, the ax fell on two other members. Chairman Nancy Argenziano and Nathan Skop were applying for a second, four-year term.

Instead, a screening committee controlled by the Legislature simply left their names off the list of candidates to be interviewed. They will be gone at the end of the year.

The bad news: (well, besides the economy) it almost appears that the Florida legislature owns the PSC. Plus power companies are “people” who can donate unlimited campaign contributions to candidates too. Repeat after me: “I pledge allegiance to Florida Power & Light, Progress Energy, The Grand Obstructionist Party, The Republican Party Of Florida, BP and Citizens United.” And not necessarily in that order….

The good news: your GOP controlled legislature actually saved you the gas money you would have spent getting to the voting booth. You’re welcome!

Far be it from me to cause nightmares, but many are the politicians who say nuclear power plants (Republican translation: “nucular pawer'”) are the way forward along with, or as an alternative to oil drilling. Given what they’ve done with the oil spill, I dare you to imagine the bang up job the GOP and BP would do with control of a nuke plant?

Now imagine what happens when crude oil and dispersants meet a nuclear power plant, which need water for cooling, some of which is water from the Gulf Of Mexico? Imagine no more! In Florida we may be about to witness it firsthand. Not that there isn’t an emergency plan in place:

Even before the big Deepwater Horizon spill, an oil boom stretched across the intake canal at the Anclote power plant near Holiday, Florida, just east of the Gulf of Mexico. It’s there to keep the oil in, should there be any accidental spill at the oil-fired electricity station. But now it’s part of Progress Energy’s defense plan for keeping the oil out.

That’s right folks. Just as it protected marshland in Louisiana and most beaches so far in the Gulf from all that oil, boom is all that stands between oil and nuclear power facilities in the “Sunshine State.”

A state where the lunatics have taken over the asylum and are forcing us all to live there along with them.

If you have a solar rebate check, hang on to it. It might come in handy in place of firewood someday soon.

Things are getting uglier by the minute now in Crist-World.

Partisan Pinheads

As the Grand Obstructionist Party continues to spiral while trying to figure out what, if anything, they stand for, we need to discuss John McCain. If you’ve been following the Crist Slugfest so far, you know that for some reason McCain went all “Maverick” again and endorsed Charlie, in spite of the recent Rubio, GOP, Tea Bagger, Palin, Giuliani, Huckabee endorsement love-fest. His decision didn’t make sense, since he recently claimed that he’d taken off his “Maverick” button and replaced it with a “Partisan” button. Well, I guess Cindy McCain must have dressed him this morning, so now apparently the “Partisan” button is back on. He was asked again about endorsing Charlie, should he change parties, and McCain said: “No. I support Republicans.”

That’s puzzling too, because I recall another “Party-Pooper-Panderer” chum of his who jumped from a potential GOP Titanic run when it looked like he was going to lose. And he and McCain are practically never separated. (Except when Linsdey Graham is standing between them.) Joe Lieberman. Oh, wait a minute. The pin thing again. Back when Lieberman did that, McCain was still King Of The Mavericks No more. Sorry, hard to keep up….

Inmates Running The Asylum?

So while McCain is out there hanging in the wind, still not endorsing either candidate and sorting his buttons, Crist lost another endorsement to Marco Rubio today. This time from Florida state House Speaker Larry Cretul, and it wasn’t pretty:

Bashing Crist’s “erratic behavior,” Cretul said Crist “has confirmed what most Floridians already knew about him, which is that he’s willing to say or do just about anything to preserve his political ambitions.”

Here in the real world, that just sounds to me like Crist is being, well, a true Republican.

He said during the economic downturn, Crist “was never willing to step up and put good policy above campaign priorities or campaign politics, and Florida has paid the price.”

Cretul’s comments may have been motivated in part by a Crist comment this weekend concerning the controversial Senate Bill 6, the teacher merit pay bill he vetoed. Judging by the Legislature’s procedures in passing it, Crist told a gathering of teachers, “You have to kind of scratch your head and think: Who is running the asylum?” according to news reports.

Again, I don’t want to be redundant here, but many of us have been asking ourselves that same question about the GOP for a long time: Who is running the asylum? But let’s rejoin the mudslinging, shall we?

Asked about Cretul’s comments today, Crist said, “I’m going to treat him as a gentleman, and I won’t question his motives.” Asked whether Crist had spoken immoderately or out of character, Crist responded, “It was out of character. But then again, so was that legislation.”

I think Charlie is dragging this out as long as he can. Why not? He’s in the spotlight, and while his chances at winning are pretty small, no matter what party he chooses, one thing seems certain. By April 30 there may be a lot more inmates in the asylum.
