Bob Barr made his candidacy for the 11th Congressional District official today. The former 11th District Congressman and former candidate for U.S. Senate, 7th District of Congress, and President (as a Libertarian) believes he is the outsider that is needed to change Washington. To his credit, he did decide against the run for Georgia’s 14th Congressional district last year. That might have been a bit much.
Despite never having gone away, Barr wants you to know he’s back:
Stepping onto the podium in front of a wall lined with big game trophy mounts, Barr said his campaign manager wanted him to ask the crowd to turn their cell phones off.
“I want you to leave those phones on,” Barr said. “I want you to leave those Blackberries on, those iPADs, those Samsungs, whatever they are, because I want you while I’m talking – and I will take no offense to this – to tweet and send messages to everyone you know that help is on the way! We’re here! We’re back!”
Click that link up there and you can see an authentic deer head. That should let you know that Bob Barr is one of you. Or something.
Oh, and in case I didn’t mention it, he’s back.
