Who Is Next?

In the near future, the Democrats will have Charles Barkley running for Governor. And, in case one ridiculous candidate was not enough:

Larry Darby, the controversial Holocaust denier who garnered 160,000 votes but lost in the Democratic primary for attorney general, announced Tuesday his intentions to run for Congress in 2008.

Darby, who recently disavowed atheism and closed the Montgomery-based Atheist Law Center, said he would run as a Democrat for the second Congressional District, a position currently held by Rep. Terry Everett, a Republican.

“The Democratic Party needs to be cleaned out and reformatted, and Larry Darby is the person to do it,” Darby said.

Gee, you think Everett is worried? In addition to the obvious problems with Darby, no-one who refers to themselves in the third person should ever serve as a public official. Oh well, at least the Democrats will try to stop him this time:

Jim Spearman, director of the Alabama Democratic Party, said Darby would have to meet the principals of the Democratic Party to run as a Democrat.

“What he showed in this last campaign, he did not meet the principals of the Democratic Party,” Spearman said. “He would need to change some of his views. He has a few years to do that.”

He didn’t meet the principles of any party, and I doubt he ever will. Nor would he be an acceptable candidate if he did change his mind. I would never trust this guy.

So who else is going to run as a Democrat for public office in Alabama? It seems like the only qualifications are being either a nutcase, a celebrity, or both. Hmmm, what are Mel Gibson’s future plans?

  1. […] Wheeler at Alablawg posted this morning that Larry Darby is planning to run for Congress in 2008. Darby is the white supremacist, Holocaust-denier, former-atheist-who-now-claims-he’s-found-Jesus who ran for Attorney General this year as a Democrat — and somehow managed to garner more than 43% of the primary vote. He thinks he’s going to run as for Congress as a Democrat in ‘08, but I don’t see that happening. Jim Spearman, director of the Alabama Democratic Party, said Darby would have to meet the principals of the Democratic Party to run as a Democrat. [Gee, ya think?] […]

    Thanks for the idea, Wheeler. You rednecks would be lucky to have me represent you in Congress. Alabamans are responsible for all the wars in the world. Are you a Jew?

    Darby… whatever.

    What’s interesting about this blog, and the main blogger-liberal, is not that I disagree with his opinions–Berkley and Darby are not exactly the normal thing. It’s that I notice the Mel Gibson shot at the end of the blog-rant. And then I remember, I’ve never found any humor, satire, or wit. It’s just a ranty lefty blog. Quite dissapointing. . . Michael Moore, Al Franken, they are lefties but quite humour and even persuasive. But not you. . . the mel gibson cheat shot. . . ohhh so funny, left-wing redneck lawyer, oh so funny. . .
