Religious Lunatic May Win Seat In Colorado House.....He's Seriously Nuts

UPDATE: THIS ASSHOLE WON AND IS IN OFFICE.

Local voters have elected a paranoid delusional to the state Senate, a county commissioner who referenced "normal white Americans" on national TV, and a city councilman whose city-issued computer would eventually be found full of porn.

Gordon Klingenschmitt, a former army chaplain and all around right wing religious nutbag who once included FOX News among "the left-wing major media," has such an active mouth that the progressive organization running rightwingwatch.org/ boasts 26 pages of stories tagged with his name, dating back to September 2006.
