I know he was not related. Anyone know anything about him ?

Would be funny if he had won. Might have gotten him adopted in the rolyal family.

A nobody ... just thrown in to ensure another democrat landslide, per usual ......... How'd that work out for ya? :funny: :funny: :funny:

No relation to fat Teddy. They probably figured us voters aren't smart enough ... and we'd just vote for the Kennedy. They never even considered the Republican a threat. 8-)

For me he surfaced right after the primary. That was his first mistake nobody really heard about him until the first debate. You cant just show up having never held a public office and just expect everyone to trip over themselves to vote for you and put you into the US Senate. This election was way too important! One thing that pissed me off about him was that he called himself the Tea Party's candidate. NOT TRUE! He was the Boston Tea Party's candidate. They are a small group no associated with the National Tea Party.

He's a libertarian and he had some good ideas. He was a virtual nobody who quit his job and ran his campaign out of his kitchen. :shock: I would like to see him start off as a state rep or selectmen or something before he gets too far ahead of himself.

I got into a lengthy discussion with a you man about him. He wanted the tparty folks to vote for him. We didnt want to waste our votes on a virtual nobody. He just wanted to make a statement. No matter what I said he wasnt going to change his mind even after I told him about the time I voted for Ross Perot. Now that the elections over I wonder who made the bigger statement me or him.

If he came out and stated that literally he was their candidate rather than saying he was the candidate who most embraced their values or such - would be a red flag sufficient for me to pass on him. Its any easy one to get away with since he could always say later that he misspoke rather than lied or was just not sufficiently clear -- since he was SOME tea party's candidate. Little white lies that arise from what you don't say that are hard to pin down.
