Chupacabra Report

Lame-brained Voters Get My Goat

Well, I know that I live in a district that elected Tom DeLay ten times, one that he drew up himself to be permanently Republican, but I didn’t realize until today that the Democratic side was seeded with dolts too.

Democrats in District 22 yesterday gave 53% of the vote to Kesha Rogers, a “LaRouche Democrat” who calls for President Obama to be impeached because he wants to kill off the old and the sick, like Hitler did.

I might have figured this after one of my kids asked me who Lyndon LaRouche was. I guess there must be a lot of folks who don’t know about this eighty-eight-year-old conspiracy nut. Ever see those odd people sitting outside your library, courthouse, or post office with the card table stocked with leaflets about their crackpot economics and international conspiracy theories? Those are the LaRouchers.

LaRouche dropped out of Northeastern University in 1942. He was a conscientious objector to WWII who joined the army as a non-combatant in 1944. After the army he went into politics, variously as a Marxist, a Trotskyite, a Maoist, and then a Socialist. He has been associated with thugs, racists, and anti-Semites such as the Ku Klux Klan. He first ran for president in 1976 on the U.S. Labor Party ticket, and has run seven more times as a Democrat. In 1988 he was convicted of conspiracy and mail fraud over some $30 million in defaulted loans and served six years of a fifteen-year sentence in the federal pen.

So in November we get to choose between a Phil Gramm Republican and a Lyndon LaRouche Democrat. You see why I’m a ticket-splitter.

God. You never read about LaRouche in VT, but I remember him from my California days.

Whatta choice. My sympathies.
