Srsly.

But the only person dumber or crazzier than Tancredo is Colorado Republican Party Chair Dick Wadhams, caught lying on the radio yesterday morning by the radio program’s own right-wing host.

Priceless!

Times is finally on this story today, although buried pretty deep inside in a small boxed feature.

This is an occupational hazard for Republicans: they want to coronate a candidate rather than let a primary take its course, so this is what happens sometimes. (Plus, Bob Dole and John McCain.)

OTOH, letting a primary run its course doesn’t always guarantee the best candiate emerges in the long run, either.

I mean, they *can’t* be this incompetent without having a secretly convoluted initiative to crown Doug Bruce king or something?

And “personal seat license”? What the what????

And YWC? Someone’s got to follow the money with these brownshirts….

Their leader calls for “European-Americans” to worship Germanic gods as befits their racial background. Seriously, Tancredo might want to check out who is paying him…After all, he is the YWC honorary chairman!!!

When some Associate Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives gets wind of this it’s going to head straight to a new “affinity group” business model for keeping the curriculum stocked: “Friends of Social Psychology”; “Students for Intro to Semiotics.” Can the personal seat license be far behind? I like this not.

Have they started a Renaissance or Englighenment club? Have they torn down the barricades of anything yet and started any Revolutions? Have they nailed 95 theses to anything yet?

If so, I’d be all for it. I kind of doubt that that’s what they’re about.

This sounds to be like “Hitler Youth” very thinly veiled. I’m astonished that a group like that could get university funding for its existence. And it makes me feel ickier about teaching Western Civ.
