Predator Politics

I reported about Sonny Landham, aka the Native American Guy From Predator, entering the Kentucky Senate race as a Libertarian.

Well, he’s making a splash alright.

Sonny Landham, the Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate, certainly lives up to the reputation he gained in Hollywood, where a movie company’s bonding company reportedly required that he have a bodyguard with him at all times — to protect the people around him.

He wants to release oil from the strategic oil reserve, drill in areas of the U.S. currently off-limits to the oil companies and then try to persuade OPEC to cut the price of oil. What if it doesn’t?

“We should go and bomb those camel-dung shovelers back into the sand,” Landham said. “I said ‘camel-dung shovelers.’ Make sure you put that in the newspaper.”

Aaaallllrighty then.

  1. A libertarian who believes in the imposition of price controls using bombs.

    I guess the party is less purist than I’d imagined.

  3. I remember quite vividly that Badnarik had detonating the UN building hi up on his presidential “to do” list if he got elected. Remember him, Rojas?

  4. Well, sure, but he wasn’t going to impose PRICE CONTROLS in the process.

    I mean, it’s not like he was crazy or something.
