Which GOP LG Candidate Has the Craziest Endorsers, Pete Snyder or Scott Lingamfelter?

Which Republican Virginia LG candidate has the craziest, most extreme, endorsers this year? It's a tough question, and it only got tougher this morning, with the endorsement by bats*** crazy Allen West of Scott Lingamfelter. How crazy and extreme is Allen West? In February 2012, ThinkProgress put together his "15 most outrageous statements." They include:

*Telling Debbie Wasserman Schultz: "You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!"
*Violating Godwin's Law by saying "If Joseph Goebbels was around, he'd be very proud of the Democrat party."
*Telling liberals to "get the hell out of the United States of America."
*Commenting that "anyone with an Obama 2012 bumper sticker, I recognize them as a threat to the gene pool."
*Threatening to kill an Iraqi detainee.
*Arguing that liberal women "have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness - to let them know that we are not going to have our men become subservient."
*Claiming that religious tolerance and coexistence in America "represents something that would give away our country."

It goes on and on, but clearly the guy needs serious psychological assistance. Even worse than his crazy quotes, the guy's a far right-wing extremist on basically every issue. And he supports Scott Lingamfelter for Virginia LG. As if that's not bad enough, so does Tom Tancredo - a raving racist who also doesn't believe in evolution and said that President Obama should be sent back to Kenya.

Given all that, you'd think it would be a hands-down victory for Lingamfelter in the craziest endorsers contest for 2013 Republican LG candidates. But nooooo. Because we've also got Pete Snyder, who has been endorsed by convicted felon and right-wing extremist Oliver North, as well as by raving homophobic bigot Michael P. Farris.

In the end, it's a tough call, and I'm having trouble deciding. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Maybe Michele Bachman could be the tie breaker? (0.00 / 0)
