Texas inmate closes in on Obama in WV primary

| May 9, 2012

Yeah, even my Democrat neighbors don’t like Obama, apparently. A guy serving a term in prison, Keith Judd, in Texas won 40% of West Virginians’ votes in yesterday’s Democrat primary according to UK’s Daily Mail;

Judd is housed at the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Texarkana, a low-security facility for male prisoners. It is located in northeast Texas near the Arkansas border, 175 miles east of Dallas.

Attracting at least 15 per cent of the vote would normally qualify a candidate for a delegate to the Democratic National Convention.

But state Democratic Party Executive Director Derek Scarbro said no one has filed to be a delegate for Judd.

Yeah, I know, it’s West Virginia and it’s not an indicator of a national trend. My neighbors are generally dumber than a post (they think I reverse-engineer alien technology for our missile program), but they’re also scared that someone is going to come for their guns. My weapons training class last year was like an Obama hate fest. We’re only five electoral votes, but I’m pretty confident that they’ll all go to Romney.

But I might be voting for a Democrat for the first time since Jimmy Carter for a national office. I’m pretty happy with Joe Manchin, somewhat. He introduced the National CCW bill to the Senate which probably has about as much chance as me running for Manchin’s seat. We’ll see.

    Did his name have to be Judd?!

  3. Flagwaver says:

    Hmm… So, if he ends up winning, will he and Obama switch places?

  4. Finally he admits it: “I reverse-engineer alien technology for our missile program!”

    Even a lot of the Mountain Williams around here were apparently bright enough to vote for Anybody But Obama.

    BTW you picked your neighbors! What did you expect you would find over in the panhandle anyway?

    And: I’ve shot pool with Manchin, seemed a nice enough fellow then, and I’ll agree he hasn’t done too bad since he got to DC.
