Duncan Hunter--has got some Duke Cunningham like problems
so yes please run, please have the bright hot spot light on you because it's going to turn ugly very quick.

from an article about Cunningham in 2005, snip pertaining to Hunter and no it's doesn't come with "2 yes 2 types of fruit"

<snip>
Since 1994, Wilkes and ADCS gave $40,700 in campaign contributions to Rep. Duncan Hunter, a San Diego Republican who now chairs the House Armed Services Committee. Hunter has acknowledged that he joined with Cunningham in 1999 to contact Pentagon officials who reversed a decision and gave ADCS one of its first big contracts, for nearly $10 million. Hunter's spokesman, Joe Kasper, said the congressman was unavailable for comment Tuesday.

1. What a fool he made of himself...
...trying to show how well the detainees are treated at Gitmo
by showing the daily menu:"Lemon Chicken, Rice and 2
Kinds Of Fruit."
I wouldn't hire him as a waiter much less POTUS.

2. and there is no way imo he'd win his home state which is also mine
he's in the good ole boys club of handing out miltary contracts and it's only a matter of time before some big quid pro quo scandal sinks his battleship.

3. I'm wondering if this is a rethug distraction technique. I can't
imagine Hunter thinks he has a shot; he's probably waiting to get indicted.

4. I can't stand him...
everytime something pertains to the war he comes out like he is the be all and end all of all matters and he has to make sure that we know he has a son who has served in Iraq. Did his son obtain special privledges, seeing that Hunter is over the House armed services committee.

5. Brian Bilbray and that mother fucker are joined at the hip.
To the point where when BB opens his mouth, out pops Hunter's voice.
