A Real Libbyloonie Runs for GOV of CO

Like other young and dumb people I toyed around with the Libertarian Party back in the early 70's. I found they were committed to things I liked, civil liberties, peace rather than war, fair treatment of the lesser of those in our society.

Then I grew out of that goofy notion of what they are.

Don't get me wrong. As people, I find them to be the most engaging of anyone I know in the political arena. I have at least two good friends who are loonies and I really enjoy hoisting a beer with them, and ragging them, and they give as well as they get. But they are still goofy.

I spent an hour in a car with then Presidential candidate Harry Browne in 1999. It was fascinating. He was wrong in everything he said, up to and including his forecast of millions of Libertarian Party members by 2002, but delightful and engaging? Yep, you bet.

But occasionally the loons in their party spread their wings and fly into the sunlight. One of them is running for GOV of Colorado. Read this exchange of e-mails, HERE ......

Why do I care you ask? She will only get a tiny percentage of the vote, like all Libertarian candidates; it is because of the foul influence of her words and thoughts, so vile and disgusting that all other Libs of good - or any - sense at all should disown her. They disowned Frazier Glenn Miller, why not Dawn Winkler? In many ways she is far more dangerous.

Yikes. Just yikes.

The Colorado LP should've done something about this.

Libertarian Party motto: "Nobody takes us seriously anyway."

My pal and fellow posse member, Peter Bowditch at Ratbags has the following reason to vote FOR Dawn:

Internet pornography:
Measles is one of the leading causes of blindness in the world. By banning measles vaccination you should be able to increase the number of blind people who, obviously, can't look at pornography. For those who don't go blind, banning of the mumps vaccine should increase the proportion of men who can't use dirty pictures even if they can see them. A good dose of diphtheria will reduce the ability of female porn stars to moan in simulated ecstasy and has the added advantage of, how shall I put this tastefully, making certain sexual practices less attractive.
