'I will take our troops out of the war zone and put them into space'
Kesha Rogers is a Larouchie who just won the Democratic nomination in Texas's 22nd district. Her triumphant statement is pretty sweet:
The victory in the 22nd Congressional District yesterday by LaRouche Democrat Kesha Rogers sent an unmistakable message to the White House, and its British imperial controllers: Your days are numbered. Kesha's campaign hit relentlessly at a single theme, that President Obama must go, that his attacks on this nation – with his dismantling of the manned space program, his efforts to ram through a fascist, killer “health care” policy, his endless bailouts for Wall Street swindlers, while demanding budget cuts which will increase the death rates among the poor, the sick, the elderly and the unemployed – are not acceptable, and will not be tolerated.
Skeptics said that LaRouche's approach is impractical, it won't work, that Democrats will never support someone who is calling for the President's impeachment. Obviously, the voters of the 22nd district disagreed with those skeptics, as Kesha received 53% of the vote against two opponents. As Kesha told the Galveston Daily News last night, when a reporter asked if she expected support from the Democratic Party in the fall election, “I am leading a war against the British Empire. I'm not worried about what Democratic Party hacks say or do.”
The release goes on to mock her opponent for saying that “I can't believe that most people who voted for her knew that she wants to" impeach Obama. "He is wrong," says Rogers's spokesperson. But neither Rogers's "about" page or her "platform" page mentions impeachment. The campaign video atop this post, however, does include my favorite political slogan of the 2010 election so far: "I will take our troops out of the war zone and put them into space!"
If that doesn't demand to be made into an Internet meme, I don't know what does.
