Barr 4 Pres

Spoil, spoil, toil and trouble:
Saying that none of the other presidential candidates are talking about the most important issues -- including what he sees as the need to "re-shape this country in the image of our Founding Fathers" -- former Republican Rep. Bob Barr of Georgia just officially he is entering the race for the Libertarian Party's presidential nomination.

…Barr was asked whether he might be a spoiler and contribute to a defeat for Republican John McCain in November -- much as many analysts believe third-party candidate Ralph Nader cost Democrat Al Gore the White House in 2000 by siphoning away votes in Florida.

Barr said such talk doesn't concern him. It will be McCain's fault, not his, if the Republican loses in November, Barr said. "The American voter deserves better than the lesser of two evils," he added.
Yup. Go get 'em, Barrbarella!

Occasionally, Bob Barr seemingly talks sense, but don't be fooled—he is a fire-breathing conservative who drafted the Defense of Marriage Act, staunchly apposes abortion, has been a speaker before the Council of Conservative Citizens which is classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, and was described as "the idol of the gun-toting, abortion-fighting, IRS-hating hard right wing of American politics."

Ya know—exactly the kind of people on the right side of the aisle who don't like McCain. Heh.
