Even Too Crazy for Texas?

Probably not.  That would be Rep. Steve Stockman who stunned the political world with a last-second decision to challenge rightwing Sen. Jon Cornyn--from the RIGHT.   Mother Jones has started collecting choice Stockman quotes.  Perhaps I will start a daily feature on this race.  Quotes sampler.  And see @stockmansenate.
  • His campaign bumper sticker: "If babies had guns, they wouldn't be aborted."
  • This tweet: "The best thing about the Earth is if you poke holes in it oil and gas come out."
  • And this one: "Democrats are playing the knockout game with your health insurance."
  • The time he raffled off an AR-15 as a campaign fundraiser.
  • The second time he raffled off an AR-15 as a campaign fundraiser.
  • His interview with Ted Nugent, in which he wondered whether victims of gun violence who advocated for gun control were "useful idiots"?
  • His decision to bring Nugent as his plus one to last year's state of the union.
  • His (empty) threat to impeach President Obama over gun control.
  • The time he compared Obama to Saddam Hussein.
  • The time he explained he would vote against the Violence Against Women Act because it helps "men dressed up as women."
  • The $350,000 in income that's unexplained in his personal financial disclosures.
