Becky C. reports:
Congressman Bob Barr authored the Defense of Marriage Act, voted in favor of the Iraq War and Patriot Act. Thousands of people still sit in prison because of the energetic personal efforts of Bob Barr, the Drug Warrior Extraordinaire (in 2002 the Libertarian Party labeled him “the worst drug warrior in Congress”).
Being a great admirer of Tom DeLay, Bob Barr donated a thousand dollars to his infamous legal expense trust. At least in that case some money was actually donated. For the most part, Bob Barr’s PAC is just a slush fund, which also provides a modest salary for his son Derek.
The sell out Libertarian Party has now become Bob Barr’s personal treasure trove, and a vehicle for his massive ego. He will garner some votes from social conservatives, paleoconservatives, White Supremacists, some of the Paulites (although unlike the appeal of Ron Paul, Bob Barr is not the real deal talking truth), and a few Know Nothings—make a very minor splash, and siphon off a few votes from McCain in the South.
Bob Barr supported Tom Delay, the creepy looking neocon that was forced out of office after being indicted for corruption (surprise). The same Tom Delay that was a public enemy of Ron Paul. That Tom Delay.
