Timothy Kincaid

January 12th, 2012

Granted Michele Bachmann had withdrawn from the race for the presidency. Nevertheless, it is with great amusement that we pass on this information from the campaign of openly gay GOP presidential candidate Fred Karger:

BACHMANN – Total Votes 347

Belknap 26
Carroll 20
Cheshire 25
Coos 6
Grafton 31
Hillsborough 80
Merrimack 34
Rockingham 82
Strafford 33
Sullivan 10

KARGER – Total Votes 485

Belknap 6
Carroll 11
Cheshire 22
Coos 5
Grafton 27
Hillsborough 252
Merrimack 52
Rockingham 72
Strafford 28
Sullivan 10

I think you have to admit Karger’s campaign has been a total and absolute failure. Donald Duck could have picked up 485 votes.

Mark, I don’t think Fred is trying to pick up votes. I think he’s trying to raise attention, introduce the idea that the Republican libertarian/small govt/individual rights rhetoric is inconsistent with anti-gay policies.

And if he mocks the stupidity of Santorum and Gingrich declaring victory for battling each other for fifth place, and pokes fun at Bachmann in the process, more power to him.
