At first, I didn’t see much that interested me here. Supporting McCain, Jane Harman, the RNC, Dick Lugar, Joe Lieberman, and even the Philadelphia Stock Exchange Political Action Committee sounded normal. However, I didn’t know much about Larry Klayman, who ran in the Republican Primary for Senate.
He lost — but his roster of endorsements includes former Congressman Bob Barr, Illinois Senate candidate Alan Keyes, Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, Pat Boone, Morgan Brittany, and Chuck Norris. Paul Weyrich made the list too.
The guy Jim Woolsey gave $250.00 to markets himself as one of the “leading enemies” of Bill & Hilary Clinton. His website is fun to look through. Here’s one of the first grafs:
Honest. Reformer. Public Servant. Watchdog. Tough But Fair. Citizen Activist. Reagan Conservative. Man of Integrity. Self-made Man. Believer and Embodiment of the American Dream. Thinker. Man of Deeds. Leading Enemy of Bill and Hillary Clinton and their “comrades” like Senators Ted Kennedy, Barbara Boxer, and Charles Schumer of the “great left wing conspiracy”. These are but some of the words that have been used to describe Larry Klayman, Florida’s next United States Senator.
This from Alan Keyes’ endorsement:
Dr. Keyes in his endorsement promised to campaign with Larry across Florida. He will also be assisting Klayman with fundraising. Dr. Keyes has a nationwide following from his presidential bids as well as his fights for the Ten Commandments and for Terri Schiavo in Florida.
“I know what it means to run as a reformer,” said Dr. Keyes, “Larry Klayman is ‘Florida’s True Conservative Reformer’ I look forward to campaigning across the state with Larry and celebrating his victory.”
“Dr. Keyes will play an important part of my campaign,” said Klayman, “I will call upon him for advice not only during the campaign but after my election.”
Much of this won’t surprise people, given Woolsey’s buddy-buddy relationship with Chalabi, his role heading the Committee on the Present Danger, and the neocon cluster he is running with nowadays. But I have to admit that I still find myself astonished by the company our former CIA Director keeps lately.
Now, if I could only find the direct link between Woolsey and Alan Keyes. . .
