Professional LOSER Gene Kelly files in CD-21
Oh, you thought we were rid of him after he forced Barbara Radnofsky into the runoff for the U.S. Senate seat. But no, Gene Kelly, (not that Gene Kelly) but *our* Democratic joke Gene Kelly has filed and paid his fee to become a candidate in the newly configured TX-21 along with Lamar Smith and John Courage.
Now believe it or not, I've heard rumor of up to 2 other potential Democratic candidates who have discussed filing in TX-21. John Courage is getting in touch to chat with fellow Dems but as we all know, no amount of "chatting" can bring reason to the man that is Gene Kelly

Will no one rid us of this troublesome idiot?

1. Good Grief!
This guy will just simply not go away. And by the way, I just can't take my John Courage sign down. I will leave it up until I find someone who would like to have it to support his run in CD21...I'll even deliver!

3. We need a "Three Strikes" law for dead dancers
Or maybe someone could talk him into running as a Republican.

6. Problem is he's an undead non-dancer
There are laws in other states that prevent perennial candidates from running for different seats in the same election cycle. They're called "sore loser" laws or provisions. Ohio has one for example. It prevents a candidate who loses in one primary for one seat from running in another during the same election cycle.
That's exactly the kind of crap Kelly is pulling. He already lost the race for Senate so he should be forced to sit out the election cycle until 2008.

We need this law just to keep Kelly from wasting time and candidate's money. I propose we get a bill introduced to do this and call it the Gene Kelly provision.

2. This sucks!
We already have a tough job in this district and that "not the dead dancer" comes into the race uninvited. He has such an ego! :mad:

4. How much did the TX GOP pay Kelly to throw his hat in the ring?
I'm just askin'...

And yes, it sucks that John Courage has to go through the primary thing all over again. I think the Repukes are scared of him.
