Truther Senate Candidate Suddenly Realizes that Nobody Supports Him
Less than 2 months after announcing his candidacy, and having accomplished absolutely nothing (which for a truther is appropriate) Richard Curtis announces he is dropping out of the race to unseat Washington State Senator Patty Murray.
I made a big mistake. It was an error in judgment and timing. I was asked to run for the U.S. Senate by progressives who want peace and social justice. I agreed to take up the charge and try to challenge the incumbent. I did this because I believed (incorrectly) that there was a historic moment at hand when people of good will would turn their backs on the two party system and flock to an alternative, even one they did not really know about. I also believed that progressive organizations would flock even more to a progressive alternative. After all we were promised change and instead we got a third Bush term with a new face. It is disgusting and I thought all of us were so disgusted we would act. It turns out that is not true. People are disgusted but they did not act – they are tired (see below).
Rich, we barely knew ya.
