This is absurd. Mac Collins still hasn’t conceded from 2006, so I guess he thinks he’s still running.
Former U.S. Rep. Mac Collins, who lost a tight race to U.S. Rep. Jim Marshall last year, is strongly considering another run in 2008, he said this morning.
Collins said he won’t make any announcement until later this year, though, because it’s “too early.” Still, he said his 12 years experience running campaigns “guides me in that direction.”
If he gets into the race, Collins would face retired Air Force major general Rick Goddard in the Republican primary. Goddard has already made his official announcement and Collins called him “a good guy.”
At some point you become a parody of yourself. Collins has crossed the rubicon on that point. We should all ignore him. He gets no second chance at this. He could still be in Congress, but for his vainglorious bid for the U.S. Senate that amounted to ineptness on the campaign trail. He’s missed his chance.
