How unpopular is Barack Obama? In West Virginia, the answer is VERY. In the Democratic primary election, Obama had an opponent, but this wasn’t just any opponent. The man is a current “resident” at the Federal Correctional Institution in Texarkana, Texas. That’s right… he’s a prison inmate, and he took it to Obama in the primary.
Keith Judd is his name, and as reported by the Christian Science Monitor, he is “serving a 210-month sentence for extortion.” Doesn’t that make him the ideal replacement for Obama?
Apparently, Judd paid $2,500 to be on the West Virginia ballot. When the votes were counted, Judd won 10 counties and 41 percent of the vote against the sitting president!
“Just how unpopular does someone have to be for this to happen?” says Joe Pounder, research director and deputy communications director at the Republican National Committee, in a statement.
He notes that Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia wouldn’t say whom he voted for in the primary.
Funny how we haven’t heard those election results broadcast on the news channels. Too embarrassing for words?
