Andy Martin Candidate of Hate
anti-Semite running for U.S. Senate

If there is one problem both Democrats and Republicans share, it's that they both have to deal with people who run for office just for the sake of running. They aren't people of high character or have any great vision, but they run for whatever office is up for an election because they simply have nothing better to do with their lives.

In 2008, Illinois will have a U.S. Senate race. Sadly for the GOP, nobody has emerged as the front runner to challenge incumbent Dick Durbin. As expected a schmuck named Andy Martin is once again throwing his hate into the ring as a candidate in the Republican Primary. Martin has run for office numerous times and rarely gets invited to the debates. Nevertheless, it should not be ignored that Martin is a blatant anti-Semite and this fact should not be overlooked.

Martin sent out a press release today in regards to another candidate, Dr. Steve Sauerberg, getting into the GOP race. "I was starting to feel a little like the Maytag Repair Man," said Martin. "All alone. And I am amused that Andy McKenna (IL GOP Chairman) keeps throwing 'bergs' in the race. First there was Steve Greenberg; now there is Sauerberg. What's next? Hamburg?

In a February 2006 Chicago Tribune article, Martin is quoted as calling a federal bankruptcy judge as a "crooked, slimy Jew, who has a history of lying and thieving common to members of his race." In a related court filing in the case, he also expressed sympathy to the perpetrators of the Holocaust.

When he ran for congress in Connecticut back in 1986, the name of his congressional campaign committee included the phrase "to exterminate Jew power in America," Federal Election Commission records show.

Besides being a hate-monger, Martin is believed to be mentally unstable. The Illinois Supreme Court denied him a law license, saying he lacked the fitness to be an attorney. According to a court notation, he has a Selective Service record that showed he had a "moderately-severe character defect manifested by well documented ideation with a paranoid flavor and a grandiose character."

Does Martin have a chance to win the GOP nomination? Absolutely not. However, hate is still hate and it must be recognized, exposed and dealt with. I know the Illinois GOP has a great relationship with the Jewish community and will continue to grant this menace the same attention he always gets...none.

Bloomberg can make 2008 interesting

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg (R) may be positioning himself for a 2008 bid for the White House as an Independent. What makes his candidacy so intriguing is his personal wealth. Bloomberg is a billionaire times five. According to a recent Washington Times article the former Democrat may be willing to spend 1 billion dollars of his personal fortune in a Presidential campaign.

A Bloomberg candidacy is laughed at by political pundits on both sides of the aisle, but ideologues better beware of any candidate who has his fortune. Ross Perot captured nearly 20% of the vote in 1992 and spent a minuscule amount compared to what Bloomberg may be prepared to spend.

Do I think Bloomberg can win the Presidency. No, he doesn't offer any special appeal as a candidate. However, he can have an impact if is willing to spend nearly a billion bucks. Bloomberg is undoubtedly power hungry and on an ego trip. If he really wanted to have an impact and bring real change to Washington, he should set up congressional and senate candidates nationwide to run as Independents and pour his financial resources into those races. Not only can he affect the outcome of those races, but I would gather the next congressional class would have about a dozen Independent members, who would have great impact on policy.

Bush pulls ahead of Congress

If it was a question on the game show Jeopardy, Alex Trebek would ask, "an approval rating worse than the current President of the United States." The answer would be, "what is the United States Congress." According to the latest Gallup Poll Congress has an approval rating of 29%, while the President is "holding steady" at 33%.

Both numbers are shameful or as we say in political terms, "Jimmy Carterish." However, in less than 6 months of controlling Congress, Nancy Pelosi and her friends have managed to piss off the American people worse than George Bush. Now that's an accomplishment.
