    Ex-County GOP Leader To Run As Protest Candidate

    LA CROSSE, Wis. -- A former La Crosse County Republican leader plans to run against Democratic Rep. Jennifer Schilling in a Wisconsin Senate recall election.

    James Smith said he is running as a protest candidate against Schilling, who announced her bid in April to unseat Republican Sen. Dan Kapanke of La Crosse.

    Smith's candidacy would force a Democratic primary and extend the campaign by nearly a month.
    Republicans running as Democrats in Wisconsin? Yup, and the purpose is to do all they can to delay the upcoming elections, which 6 Republicans and 3 Democrats have been certified for, due to their being sucessfully recalled.

    It may be dirty pool, but it is still above board. It's actually kind of funny too. You know, I think Barack Obama should run as a Republican, just so that America can get into the spirit of this whole thing, and finally realize that there really isn't that much difference between the 2 parties. Really!! They should join together and become the Republicrat party, and for a mascot, they can have a donkey's ass sticking out of an elephant's ass.
