Is it just me, or is there something a little off about this guy’s platform:
Bob Kinsey, a Denver peace activist who in a 2004 congressional race was able to peel off significant votes from the major parties, says he’ll run as a Green Party candidate for Colorado’s open Senate seat.
Kinsey’s entry throws a potential curve into what’s shaping up as a close battle between political heavy-hitters — former Republican Congressman Bob Schaffer and Democratic Congressman Mark Udall.
Kinsey declared that he’ll focus on a core of issues he says are being skirted by the major candidates — immediate withdrawal from Iraq and the impeachment of President Bush among them. Both issues are top concerns for a narrow group of progressive voters who otherwise would likely support Udall.
Bob Kinsey, meet the Twentieth Amendment. Better put together a plan for a lightning-fast impeachment and trial, since you will only have seventeen days to carry it out.
