Politics Lunacy on the Ballot

Larry Craig’s vacant seat is bringing out the crazies:
A 66-year-old Idaho strawberry farmer, formerly known after a previous name change as Marvin Pro-Life Richardson, is now, simply, “Pro-Life.”
“I think it’s just and I think it’s proper to have Pro-Life on the ballot,” Pro-Life told the Idaho Press-Tribune. “If I save one baby’s life, it’s worth it.”
Pro-Life made the change after an unsuccessful run for governor under the Constitution Party in 2006, hoping this time to skirt the state policy that prevented him from using what was then his middle name as his name on the ballot, as the state considered it not a name, but a slogan.
Officials must now recognize Pro-Life’s legal name.
Wow. You can’t say Richardson isn’t committed to his cause. Whether he should be committed outright is another matter.
