Resident Muay Thai expert, gunloon, and pretend progressive Sebastian Sassi is running for Congress (MD-3). He running on the
Libertarian Guns ‘n’ Dope ticket, hoping to be elected a Representative in the state of Maryland.
He’s also hoping his hairdo will become fashionable.
Both hopes are quite sadly doomed to failure.
Snark aside, although I disagree with the
Libertarian Guns ‘n’ Dope Party (they’re basically a bunch of rightwingers who don’t want to apologize for their hookers), I do believe the US needs to see the inclusion of other parties in the political process. It’s healthy and helps keep the two big parties semi-honest.
Unfortunately, folks like Sassi use candidacy in these minor parties as a form of self-aggrandizement and promotion, rather than running a campaign. Sassi’s not the first; Alan Keyes and Pat Buchanan have made careers of using campaigns to promote themselves rather than trying to get elected. So long as the
Libertarian Guns ‘n’ Dope Party continues to field candidates like Sassi–they’ll have to be content to finishing last in most races.
Update: Oh, no. The Sassi-do is sweeping Munchkinland!
