From the Tabloids to the Ballot

In my piece about Randall Terry’s Tea Party-driven comeback, I broke the news that Terry’s activists were going to mount congressional campaigns in 2010 for the express purpose of putting anti-abortion rights TV ads on the air inside the beltway. Along those same lines, the persistent Obama conspiracy figure Larry Sinclair — a felon who managed to get 1 million YouTube viewers to watch a video about his off-the-wall sex and drugs allegations about the president — has transitioned into a run for Congress in Florida’s 24th district, a swing seat that elected a Democrat in 2008.

I found out about this because the Globe, a tabloid that reports basically anything Sinclair does, put it on the cover. Sinclair, who’s running as an independent, has one of the most honest slogans of 2010:

I have served my time, now it’s time I serve my Country.

There’s more at the site, including one possible explanation for his new career choice: a ticker that reveals he’s raised more than $200.

This is another one of Sinclair's “pipe dreams” (pun intended.)

Scam after scam, Sinclair has failed in each endeavor which is really, only to raise money from very stupid people.

Sinclair= EPIC FAIL

Romo is expected to miss between six and eight weeks, which could be an eternity for the 1-5 Dallas Cowboys. If their playoff hopes aren’t already squelched, they likely will onitsuka tiger by asics be by the time their Pro Bowl quarterback is healthy again. So perhaps team owner Jerry Jones will end up telling Romo to call it a season and rest up for 2011. Think onitsuka tiger by asics about it: Considering how much the Cowboys struggled when led by their asics gt shoes star, it seems unlikely they will turn things around while led by 38-year-old backup quarterback Jon Kitna, who hadn’t thrown a pass in more than two years before Monday night and whose last gig as a starter was on a Detroit Lions asics tiger shoes team that went winless in 2008. “We’re not going to stop right now and give up or quit or whine or even make excuses,” Cowboys coach Wade Phillips said Tuesday. “You’ve just got to go forward. That’s what we have to do. I think our guys will band together.” The Cowboys opened training camp hyped as favorites asics running shoes to reach the Super Bowl, which will be played at Jones’ $1.2 billion stadium. They already were on the brink of being left behind Monday night when Romo threw a pass early in the second quarter, then took a hard — but clean — hit from New York Giants linebacker Michael Boley.
