That’s the title of The New Republic’s article on this election cycle’s most bizarre candidates and their beliefs.
TNR had this to say about our pal Stonewall:
Emmer is a “Tenther”—that is, he believes the Tenth Amendment (which reserves powers not granted to Uncle Sam for the states) should be used to nullify numerous Democratic laws. He’s also proposed some roadblocks of his own—like a state constitutional amendment that would prohibit any federal law from being enforced in Minnesota unless it’s ratified by supermajorities of the state legislature. [and also approved by the governor]
Gosh, where have you heard about that before? Over, and over, and over again?
TNR took a swipe at Emmer for his impaired driving legislative offerings, too:
So wary is Emmer of excessive government intervention that he’s come out for laxer drunk-driving laws, although it’s conceivable this position was partly inspired by his two previous arrests for DWI.
Emmer tops the heap in an article that lists Dan Maes, gubernatorial candidate in Colorado; Ken Buck, Senate candidate in Colorado; Bill Randall, House candidate, North Carolina; Tim Crawford, House candidate, Indiana (a man that TNR say is crazier than Dan Burton, who “memorably” shot a pumpkin in his backyard to prove that Vince Foster was murdered); Allen West, House candidate, Florida; Tom Mullins, House candidate, New Mexico; Andrew Raczkowski, House candidate, Michigan; and Ed Martin, House candidate, Missouri.
Well done, Stonewall.
