Kokesh: Unfit For Office
Except maybe dogcatcher where he might be able to put that pistol he smuggled back from Iraq to good use.
TSO at This Aint Hell is all over him like white on rice today:
But let us start with this fact: Adam Kokesh has the same chance of winning the New Mexico Third Congressional District as I do of becoming the next Laker Girl. [Trust us you don't want to even think about that... ed.] We can dispense with the rest after that, but it is important that you realize his campaign has zero chance. The Cook Political Report (and everyone else who tracks races) list this as a “Solid Democrat” seat. The registration is D+7, and Kokesh will not pull all the GOP vote. The incumbent has not unduly pissed anyone off, so you can start with a solid D vote. Now look at Kokesh, does anyone who knows this guys background really believe him to be a GOP? I mean, set aside all policy considerations, does he act like a Republican?
Adam is a libertarian. He and others like him are the very reason I am not one. Because they are so inexcusably smug, so arrogant, and so blind to any other rational viewpoint. If you looked at issues, Adam may be right on the vast majority, but he is such a pompous ass that you want to disagree. Either way, how many Republicans do you know that share the stage with ANSWER, CodePink et al?
