Now For Something Really Creepy

Now I can’t stop Googling the Vermont candidates for whatever the fuck they want to run for. For a real creep-out, check out the website for Greg Parke, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate. Let’s put it this way: You have to be a real asshole to make Rich Tarrant seem palatable. I mean a REAL asshole. Just check out that photo of him in the fighter plane (see above). Yeah, it’s real. This idiot actually thinks he’s going to get somewhere in Vermont by touting his military credentials. Ew.

As opposed to Rainville who apparently has the political smarts to have military credentials AND run against Bush, Parke has the military credentials and is actually running to the right of Bush. Proof? Parke is accusing Bush of “hiding” the evidence of weapons of mass destruction they found in Iraq. Yeah sure, that makes a whole lot of sense.

My favorite headline from his website is this goody: “Parke Says Senate Primary Rival Tarrant Was Too Harsh in Criticizing Republicans.”

Let’s see, every poll in Vermont shows that Bush’s approval rating in the state is somewhere in the 20% range. So, why in the hell would someone like Parke think that running to the right of Bush would make electoral sense?

Answer: He’s nuts.
