Second, and more importantly, because one of his opponents put together a hit site. Link’s via Instapundit – I’m not going to give said site traffic – and it’s quite the little collection of innuendos and assertions-stated-as-fact, in its way. If you’re wondering whether its real or not, then let me note this: it’s attempting to be an anonymous site which was fairly self-evidently contracted out to an outside website designer. If it was real, then everything that I know about Tea Partiers tells me that the people behind it wouldn’t be trying to hide. That particular sub-demographic of the American people is not shy about being forthright and open about their opinions.
I also know that Jesse Kelly‘s been in the primary for more than a year, which is a pretty long time for a supposed fake candidate to be running. You tell me if he’s not for real:
Folks, I don’t want to get involved in the primaries any more than I have to. And I’m not actually endorsing Jesse Kelly here. But after South Carolina I am absolutely sick and tired of dirty tricks to get the nomination. Fight clean, or don’t fight.
And check everything from now on.
PS: I don’t know whether it was commissioned by one of his primary opponents (to not-really pull a name right out of the air… like, say, Brian Miller’s), or whether it was done by Gabrielle Giffords… but I intend to find out.
[UPDATE]: Yeah, I’m pretty sure that it’s one of Kelly’s primary opponents at this point.
Glenn Beck and his friends had some fun during Friday’s edition of “The Glenn Beck Program” radio show. Using different flavors of crushed cheetos, they tried to replicate Donald Trump’s repulsive orange hue.
