Sticking a Fork in the National Libertarian Party
As some of you people may remember, I was scornful of the LP's choice of Bob Barr as their presidential candidate in 2008.
Now comes the delicious word that Bob (still rockin' a porn stash for the ages) is in Haiti, REPRESENTING BABY DOC DUVALIER!!
Yes that's right, the Libertarian presidential candidate is helping out a notoriously corrupt and brutal ex-dictator.
I do not think that the party will soon recover from the complete and total sellout of libertarian principles that Barr's nomination represented. This is just icing on an ugly, ugly cake.
LP members: Check out this load of crap from your candidate:
Barr "will be representing" Duvalier "in bringing his message of hope to the world," the former Republican congressman's website says.
"I also am reminded of others who have risen from the ashes," Barr told reporters Friday. "The city of Atlanta is the Phoenix city. The people of Haiti, likewise, will rise from the problems created by last year's earthquake and emerge stronger and better than before. That I know is Mr. Duvalier's deep wish and something that he knows in his heart."
1. Baby Doc was a 15 year slow motion earthquake for the people of Haiti.
2. Baby Doc can't know anything in his heart because he does not HAVE a heart
3. If one finds themselves within 10 feet of Baby Doc, the only appropriate course of action would be to try and inflict as much physical damage on him as possible as opposed to the heinous butt kissing of Bob Barr.
