That Sam Brownback Sure Can Draw a Crowd!

This photo just warms my heart. Here we have the Christian Right’s dream candidate Sam Brownback drawing…let’s just say a less than impressive crowd in New Hampshire. Could it be that his vision of government imposed family values isn’t resonating even within the G.O.P.? Could this be a sign that maybe, just maybe the Christian Right is losing some if its control over the party? That would probably be too optimistic of an assessment but hope springs eternal.

  1. Maybe he’d draw more crowds if he didn’t look so darn scary

  2. He’d make a pleasant town councilman :)

  3. It’s probably more that Brownback’s from a small media area (Kansas), he’s a political opportunist with a fondness for latching onto empty hot-button issues that play in the press (he’s the Republican equivalent of John Edwards), and he’s not even that popular in his own state (mainly because he’s missed more votes than any other Senator except the guy who had a stroke, because of his presidential bid). Sam Brownback is unpopular because Sam Brownback sucks, not because the Republican party is getting less religious.

  4. And if he became my town councilman, I’d probably move. Or run for town council to get rid of him.

  5. Kinda makes you want to chuckle doesn’t it? It’s sad when even your paid family members don’t want to show up and support you.

  6. Wait maybe that is his paid family members in the audience and he is directing his speech to the only person in the audience that isn’t from the campaign.

    He along with Hunter and Tancredo will soon be out of the picture once the funding numbers come in at the end of September.
