GA – 9 race a Maury Povich episode?

If you believe that evolution and the Big Bang theory are lies straight from the pit of hell or that Federal employees don’t have real jobs or that the 16th and 17th amendments be repealed and that the Civil War and healthcare reform are comparable then your candidate looks poised to enter the 9th Congressional District race.

According to Jim Thompson at the Athens Banner-Herald:

Former Republican congressman Paul Broun, who represented the Athens area in Washington for seven years before leaving the seat in 2014 for an unsuccessful run for the U.S. Senate, is hinting strongly that he’ll be a candidate for Congress in this year’s election.

Broun, a Watkinsville physician, said Thursday he will announce on Wednesday whether he will, in fact, be seeking the 9th District congressional seat held by Republican Doug Collins.

As if the Department of Justice did not have enough to do with the machinations of the likely Democrat nominee for President, the GOP is now demanding equal time.

The incumbent has supported a lot of the “establishment” things that led to the outrage that led to the creation of Trump, and Broun can never be counted out against them as we’ve seen before.

He got elected in 2013. That’s crazy.

Mr Broun does not even live in this district, correct?

It is rather strange that someone can run to represent a district they do not live in but I have to resign a municipal position to run for a state district.

Broun’s district when he was elected covered much of the district Collins now represents. But no, he does not live there nor is he required to.

Paul Broun is a walking, talking, conservative scam artist. I’ll have a lot more to say about that next week.

He should be one of the poster children that will help illustrate why the Republican Party is imploding. And is a ranking officer in the army of the False Profits for Profit.

Could you blame him for running, though? If you look at what Perdue and Trump have done (I hesitate comparing the two, but I know you have the intelligence to know what I am talking about), does Broun really have much to lose by running a campaign, in this current political environment, for a couple of months? Just run as the “outsider.”

It’s all fun and games until somebody throws a chair.
