  1. This guy is awesome. Hopefully he can get some national media coverage…that would really help him beat Nancy Piglosi. Man, I would laugh my ass of if he can beat her.

  2. Nancy Pelosi is a walking, talking example of the problem children who infest the Parliament of Whores. She’s bought-and-paid-for by every corporate lobbyist with a checkbook.

    Hell, yeah, I’d like to see John Dennis kick her butt.

  3. Republicans and democrats are just two heads of the same treacherous snake. Never support either party. Another party should replace the Republican party as it heartly supported Dubya and his treachery. Pelosie has demonstrated that the Democratic party is no better so it likewise should be abandon. It is not wasting your vote to vote for someone else, it is wasting it to vote for the same old treacherous parties.

  4. Ron Paul's Liberty movement can "Co-Exist" with "Palin's Tea Party"? Is this guy NUTS!? Palin and Paul are DIAMETRICAL OPPOSITES of each other. Palin is a NEOCON. This would be like saying Ron Paul can "co-exist" with RUDY GIULIANI, or MITT ROMNEY, or MIKE HUCKABEE, or JOHN McCAIN.

  5. If this guy wants to win votes in SF, he should focus exclusively on the anti-war, anti-bailout, pro civil liberties side of his libertarianism. People in SF are totally starved for a politician with that message. Running against social security and medicare is a loser here (and probably in most places.)
