Your mission, if you should accept it...
Remember this?
Iowa Republicans plan to choose another candidate to run in Senate District 34 against Democrat Liz Mathis, after Randi Shannon bailed on the race to pursue leadership in an alternate form of government.

Shannon, who describes herself as an entrepreneur and homeschooling mom, released a four-page message Friday saying she is now the senator of the Republic of the United States of America and the Republic for Iowa.

The group believes that America’s original form of government, a collection of republics, was usurped in 1871 by a corporation called the United States Corporation, according to the group’s website.

Go for it, Mittens! That alternate government won't president itself. And clearly, they'll accept any whackjob.

Take Richard Mourdock, Todd Akin, Michele Bachmann, Allen West, and the rest of your crazies with you.
