Throwing his hat in the ring today for the GOP presidential nomination was Representative Tom Tancredo (R-Colorado). Just to clarify, this action by Congressman Tancredo is the political equivalent of those best of the worst American Idol tryouts that end with tone-deaf ugly people leaving some nondescript Marriot in either tears or profanity. That's pretty much going to be this jackass in about six months.
Tancredo is best known for his ignorance and intolerance surrounding the immigration issue. That's about all this walking hate-stick has; that and less than a million dollars to try to pull his fantasy off. Here's a list of his best of, enjoy:
- Honorary Chairman of Americans Have Had Enough! a South Carolina pissy isolationist hate-club
- Called Miami a "Third World country" in a speech at Michigan State University
- Proposed bombing Mecca to send a message to the terrorists (then vehemently denied it and got caught lying on CNN - brilliant)
