A while back, local media mentioned that the GOP isn't helping much with the campaign of Jim Matheson's opponent, Bill Something. Granted, Matheson has so much cash and such a huge lead that writing checks to TheGOPGuy would be a waste. But let's face it: Jim "I Heart Guantanamo" Matheson is close enough to a Republican already, they don't need to replace him.
That's VOU2's theory for why the Republicans keep running, let's say, "unexciting" candidates against Matheson. LaVar Christensen gave up his spot as a state legislator, but was too obsessed with gay sex and Nancy Pelosi even for Utah Republicans, got wiped out in the general, and is now trying to go back to being a big fish in a little pond.
Christensen was at least noticed. Dew is just . . . out there, somewhere. We think. And we do mean out there. Check out his campaign video. His daughter says that they used to get up at 6 a.m. and "read the Constitution" together. Okaaaay.... I'm all about constitutions -- we have more than one, by the way -- but that sounds a little weird.
So, once again, it's Torture-Bill vs. The Head Scratcher if we stick to the usual suspects. Time to get out the Voter Information Pamphlet...p. 8...Matthew Arndt, Libertarian. College teacher, good...liberty brings more peace and prosperity, good..."Government's only proper role is to protect property, enforce contracts and settle property disputes"--What? Government is just a big courtroom? Glad you're not in charge of regulating our retirement funds.
Guess that leaves Dennis Ray Emery, Constitution Party.... "No Statement Provided." You had us at No...
