Yeah, this will in no way backfire.

(Grain of salt, because redistricting).

MI-14 is D+27.
MI-8   is R+2, so if I was the RNC, I'd be pissed, because they just lost that district if he wins the primary.
MN-6 was Michele "Crazy Eyes" Bachmann's district pre-redistricting.
GA-19 is R+19.

So they'll probably let him run in the 14th, because why not.

Your name's 'Levene'? You call yourself a politician, you son of a biatch?

Foreign guy being embraced by the Republicans? Oh he's white, carry on then.

Triple Oak: Foreign guy being embraced by the Republicans? Oh he's white, carry on then.


The GOP has never had a problem with a foreign born person or even a person with a foreign sounding name. They'd never harp on such things and would never constantly harp on someone's nationality...even if they have a birth certificate proving they're an American

charges of carpetbagging

An overused charge that applies to this case.  Let's see what else we know about him:

the 64-year-old is convinced he'll be dead within ten years.

Levene, who is Jewish, has also called for the creation of a "New Israel," a sliver of land on Texas's Gulf Coast that would be set aside as sovereign Israeli territory to complement the old Israel in the Middle East.

Levene believes the U.S. financial system will collapse . . . . Foremost among his proposals to stave off this scenario is the elimination of the corporate income tax.


Well, at least looks like the former Brit has gone native, so there's that

It says something unflattering about a person running against Bob Barr in a GOP primary, and I don't know whom I hate more - an opportunist dickbag like Barr, or an opportunist crazyperson like Levene.

// be funnier if he'd wanted to make New Israel part of Florida
// or AZ - for some reason, now a huge draw for retiring politically conservative Jews

reading all that, its more sad than anything. he sounds more like a bipolar off his meds than anything

Jesus, the GOP is even off-shoring U.S. Senator jobs now.

So what would be New Jerusalem? Houston? I wouldn't think Corpus Christi would be...

I can't help but wonder, would he get as many votes as districts he wins? I'm guessing yes but I don't how how that would actually work.

Strangely, there's a county on the coast that's extremely sparsely populated (Kenedy County). I have no idea why. Maybe the groundwater is hideous like it is in a lot of west Texas.

Uh, Jindal was born in the United States. If you automatically think of him as in a different category than other Americans descended from immigrants, you've more to reinforce stereotypes of Republicans than the the Boobieser did.

He should have just said, "Lets just get Lakewood." It's already mostly there in terms of being a sovereign country, they only recently have been told to knock it off with underfunding non-Jewish public schools there.
