Crazy Snake Continues To Swallow Itself

The fight over which Republican gets to run for Disgraced Wingnut Congressman and One-Time Future Savior of the GOP, Aaron Schock, keeps getting funnier.  From the State Journal-Register:
The special primary elections to pick major-party candidates to replace former Republican U.S. Rep. AARON SCHOCK in the 18th Congressional District are just more than a week away.
So perhaps it wasn't a surprise that an opponent would find fault after a news conference last week at the Illinois Chamber of Commerce office in Springfield to announce endorsements of state Sen. DARIN LaHOOD, R-Peoria, by that group and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
MIKE FLYNN, a Quincy native and now a resident there who has lived in the Washington area for 20 years and who founded the website with ANDREW BREITBART, criticized the endorsement.
"If you love big bank bailouts, loved the (BARACK) OBAMA stimulus, love corporate welfare for big defense contractors, and loved Obama's executive amnesty, then evidently, you should vote for Darin LaHood," Flynn said in a prepared statement aimed at what his campaign indicated were chamber policies. "If you're for limited government, lower taxes, free market competition, and securing the border first, then it's clear: You should vote for me."
ROB ENGSTROM, senior vice president and national political director of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, who was at the endorsement event, later responded: "Mike Flynn's comments are confusing, given that he actively sought the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's endorsement on May 18. In doing so, he affirmed that he supports the U.S. Chamber's mission, which is to advocate for American free enterprise.
"Washington has enough politicians who say one thing in private and do another in the public arena," Engstrom continued. "The fact is that Mr. Flynn's nonexistent campaign isn't gaining any traction, and he is getting desperate."...
Shine on you crazy diamonds!

Also, LaHood knows the secrit sharia plans. Obama was LaHood's ConLaw professor at U. of Chicago. True story.
