"Senator" Robert "Needed Killin'" Wagner Is Giddy Over Some Liberty Party Primary Wins
Thing is that these Teabagger types ran mostly as Republicans and not as the Liberty Party candidates described by the not-yet-Senator Robert "Needed Killin' " Wagner in his Facebook post:
The so-called Liberty Party is a Ron Paul political devolution into irrevelance posing as a party structure but that is really just all about the boss.
A reader of this blog who pointed Wagner's Facebook post out to me (and who has a track record of very interesting Facebook finds this year) was as struck as I am to find "the bar for "mainstream" to be (so) low and amusing." Oddly, we hear nothing now from Wagner about the thirty Vermont Senate candidates he claimed that he would be sheparding to victory in 2012 and instead he's wetting his pants over four very out of state campaigns.
For instance, one of the winners, and they truly all are, is Kerry Bentivolio who ran in a Michigan Republican primary for a U.S. House seat. His Republican opponent labeled him 'Krazy Kerry' and the MI GOP has all but written off the seat in this election. You can read the Detroit News "Can GOP Fall In Love With 'Krazy Kerry'?" piece here.
One of Wagner's other fringers who grabbed a spot on the Republican ticket in Missouri, Robyn Hamlin, is running against a Democrat who creamed her in their last head-to-head by getting 73.6% of the vote. Like Wagner she seems to have a thing for repeatedly getting her ass kicked hard.
Another Missouri Liberty Paultard candidate who "won," Cynthia Davis, was unopposed in the Constitution Party primary. For those of unfamiliar with the Constitution Party, just take the main highway out to the fringe and when you get there go a few miles further and collect your party hat. The Constitution Party has had a long association with racists Pat Buchanan and Tom Tancredo, as well as with militia types and nutjobs like Alan Keyes.
The fourth "winner" is a nobody like Wagner who has never bothered to serve in some local elective office and who has about as much chance to win as Wagner.
You'd think that Wagner might have picked up an idea in all of this, like running in the August 28 Addison County Republican primary as a write-in. No one else is running so how could he lose?
Meanwhile, in another matter related to Wagner's conflicting positions, there's been no word yet about whether Wagner will be returning the $288.30 Federal subsidy he received while flying out of the airport in Rutland, VT, which is exactly the kind of subsidy that he "is strongly opposed to" and has argued harms Vermonters that I revealed he'd hypocritically availed himself of (as in sticking his snout in the federal money trough) here. Wagner must publicly give back that Federal subsidy money or he'll be exposed for the hypocritical fraud that many of us Vermonters know him to be.
UPDATE Saturday, 12:01 AM:. It has been quite correctly noted that "Senator" Robert "Needed Killin'" Wagner claimed that "Liberty candidates took FOUR (ALL CAPS Wagner's) seats in yesterday's primaries!!!!". Fact is that these Paultard clowns have taken no seats. Makes one wonder how stupid Wagner intends to get in 2012. Well, actually it's looking to be pretty stupid and paranoid but that'll be in my next post about the Wagner deluge.
