Terrorist to run against Obama in Democratic primaries

[Trigger warning for terrorism, misogyny, reproductive coercion and homophobia, applies to all links]

Activist Terrorist Randall Terry, founder of the anti-abortion hate group Operation Rescue, has chosen today to announce that he'll run against President Obama for the 2012 Democratic presidential nomination. He was set to make the announcement (a few minutes after this writing) at the Holocaust museum, because that's what Randall Terry does.

On a related note, Terry is hoping to run an anti-abortion ad during the Super Bowl. It just so happens that it's theoretically harder for networks to reject advertisements from political candidates than it is from gay people.

The real story here is clearly whether he'll show up to a debate in his alligator boots, because as the Washington Post recently reminded us, he's a terrorist an interesting guy.
