  •  Bob Dornan redux? (6+ / 0-)

    Reminds me of the California Rep. who made an utterly pointless and futile run for president in 1996 and then lost his House seat in the next election.

    Of course the parallel isn't exact; Dornan didn't have problems getting back on the House ballot, but was rejected by his constituents, and whatever his flaws (which apparently include a ego the size of Lake Huron) McCotter at least hasn't shown Dornan's penchant for offensive and inflammatory rhetoric.
