He never intended to win the nomination. He just wanted exposure to run for senate against gardner. gardner is a real POS, but probably better then chickenchocker.

Sad to say, this guy who is himself an ultra lib, made some of the more common sense “moderate” statements at the debates.

Did he even qualify for the debates? Anyway, there is a little more breathing room in the clown car.

He probably started out looking for the VP slot, but is such a bad candidate that was a no go. His fall back was always to take on a weak ‘pub, Cory Gardner.

So is the current Governor of Montana — beat’s the $hit out of me what his name is...odd that as I live in Montana.

Couple of real douches I suspect!

Dickenschlooper is afraid that he wouldn’t even get primary votes in his own state. Williamson would probably outdo him in Calirado.

Cory “Chauncey” Gardner is very weak, and would likely not defeat Hickenloopy. The best we can hope for it that half of Democrats are too stoned to wake up to vote.
