Craig James' Senate campaign relegated to shed of broken dreams

Tuesday May 29th, 2012

Rodeo clown and devoted lying liarpants Craig James, whose campaign for Senate is still apparently a real thing, faces a bit of a Republican primary challenge today, where he's polling at a robust 3 percent, a statistically insignificant but still LOLsome two percentage points behind "Undecided." You know at least a hundred people, gentle reader, and we live in contentious political times: When was the last time 97 of them agreed on anything? Say this for the man Wikipedia insists is nicknamed "Mustang Breath:" He's a true uniter.

As this sideshow draws to a close, we'd like to thank Mr. James for the months of entertainment his vision quest has provided us (most especially this gem from Public Policy Polling, last week: "As Craig James has become better known he's just gotten more and more unpopular") and wish him all the best in his future endeavors, so long as he stays the blue hell off our televisions. Perhaps he can use this downtime to get better at lying. One should always strive for excellence in one's beloved pastimes.
