Mark Clayton, Anti-Gay Lunatic, Gets Democratic Senate Nomination; Party denounces him

Mark Clayton, Anti-Gay Lunatic, Gets Democratic Senate Nomination

The Tennessee Democratic Party issued a sad statement yesterday, denouncing their own party's freshly-minted senatorial candidate:

The only time that Clayton has voted in a Democratic primary was when he was voting for himself. Many Democrats in Tennessee knew nothing about any of the candidates in the race, so they voted for the person at the top of the ticket ...

... the Tennessee Democratic Party disavows his candidacy, will not do anything to promote or support him in any way, and urges Democrats to write-in a candidate of their choice in November.

Mark Clayton is the former vice president of the Public Advocate of The United States -- the same deeply paranoid, gay-hating outfit that misappropriated a gay couple's wedding photo for use in a political advertisement earlier this year, and last week published what was supposed to be a funny song about child-molesting gay scoutmasters.

These offenses against taste and sanity don't begin to describe the full breadth and depth of Clayton's weirdness, or the Public Advocate's. Mother Jones has an instructive breakdown, which informs us that Clayton once believed the Chinese government had teamed with Google to destroy his political career; that Clayton has denounced Arnold Schwarzenegger as a sort of Austrian Manchurian candidate whose mission is to bring Nazi eugenics to America; and that Clayton's deepest fears include the construction of a superhighway from Canada to Mexico, the completion of which would for some reason destroy the United States.

3. I voted for her.

The problem is that there was zero promotion of any of the Democratic candidates. I read, maybe, two stories during the months leading up to the election and those were the dry "round-up" stories that didn't flesh out any one candidate beyond a few platitudes.

The Democratic Party in Tennessee is the MAIN PROBLEM with Democrats in Tennessee. The party hasn't done bupkus in so long, I don't even know if there IS a Democratic Party in the state.

4. Why Didn't Tennessee Democratic Party pick their OWN candidate?

Better yet, why don't THEY pick a write-in candidate and start supporting him NOW? Why didn't they ask the DNC or DCCCC for help if they needed it? Where did this guy come from? WHY DOES THIS KEEP HAPPEN IN THE SOUTH?

5. See my post above.

There is NO Democratic Party, to speak of, in many of the Southern states. WE have to change that.
