Oklahoma City Truther Makes Good

The Virginia Republican Party has a lot on its shoulders this year — a failure to take back the governor’s mansion will slow the GOP momentum going in to the 2010 elections. Nevertheless, the party hasn’t been tacking to the center as it builds itself back up again. (It moved far right in 2008, changing candidate nomination rules to clear a path for U.S. Senate candidate Jim Gilmore, who got shellacked by Mark Warner.)

Activist Catherine T. Crabill just won the party’s nomination for a seat in the state House of Delegates, despite having written that “our government was culpable in the [Oklahoma City] bombing” and referring more generally to “the domestic terrorists known as our own government.”

The party’s still divided on whether Crabill can win.

“She has stated herself in such immoderate terms that she has made her candidacy almost a caricature,” said Westmoreland GOP Chairman Robert Fountain. “Her views will appeal to the faithful, but not to enough people to give us the 51 per cent of the vote we will need to win in November.”

“I’m sick of moderate things. God bless her for saying immoderate things,” said Robert Barlow of King George County. “She believes in the same things we do. She speaks to what we believe. She’ll stand up for it when she’s elected.”
