Wannabe Congresscritter Will Go To Washington To Stop Evolution Being Shoved Down Children’s Throats

Up here in Minnesota, this tundra-dwelling portion of yr Wonkette has to deal with the double indignity of snow STILL being on the ground even as congressional endorsement balloting begins. It’s two terrible tastes that taste terrible together. This weekend, Minnesota saw the GOP hurl forward Aaron Miller, a fine upstanding young military vet, to challenge Democratic incumbent Tim Walz. Why does Miller care so much about getting to Washington? So his spawn won’t ever be forced to learn how science works, basically. He also called for more religious freedoms. He repeated his story about his daughter returning home from school because evolution was being taught in her class. He said the teacher admitted to not believing in the scientific theory to his daughter but told her that the government forced him to teach the lesson. “We should decide what is taught in our schools, not Washington D.C.,” Miller said.

Panty Prosecutor Wins, Evolution-Dumper Loses: Your Lesser Candidate Wrap-Up!

It occurred to us that we have not followed up on some very important electoral news: Namely, the fate of several candidates who nobody had ever heard of until they briefly shone in the “weird news” column, and then disappeared from view. What happened to those wackos with all their wackiness? Let it never be said that Your Wonkette doesn’t follow up!

Undercover Bathhouse Spy & Michele Bachmann Mentor Wins MN GOP Primary

Hey, remember Allen Quist, the homophobic Gollum lookalike who Mother Jones profiled a few months back? You know, Michele Bachman’s political mentor, the chap who “went undercover at an adult bookstore and a gay bathhouse in an effort to prove to a local newspaper reporter that they had become a ‘haven for anal intercourse'”? YES, THAT GUY!!! He is now the Republican nominee for Congress in Minnesota District 1! Quist defeated his opponent in the GOP primary with 54% of the vote, and will go on to face incumbent Rep. Tim Walz in the fall. Mr. Quist is the sort of candidate that reporters might call “colorful,” largely because most media outlets shy away from the more accurate phrase “bugfuck crazy.” As we noted when we last covered his adventures, in addition to his obsession with teh gheys (“At one point…a Senate leader suggested he had an unhealthy preoccupation with sex, having devoted 30 hours to it in a single session”), he is also quite certain that humans and dinosaurs lived together quite recently, since there’s a Cambodian temple that features a carving that he is quite certain can ONLY be a stegosaurus, depicted by people who had seen one, or at least heard about one. (The carving’s head and neck are all wrong; it’s probably an Indian Rhino. More to the point, the carving lacks a thagomizer.) He also believes that the Book of Job should be incorporated into schools’ science curricula, because it proves that dragons were real.

Undercover Gay Bathhouse Spy Will Be Minnesota’s Next Michele Bachmann

Just when we were feeling that the 2012 election cycle seemed suspiciously light on mentally unstable long shot candidates, Mother Jones brings us a delightful little profile of Minnesota GOP congressional candidate Allen Quist, whom queen lunatic Michele Bachmann recently endorsed while noting that in her opinion, the former state representative is a man of “intellectual firepower.” *RUBS HANDS.* Oh good, let’s start with some of Quist’s prior accomplishments: “During his time as a state representative, Quist…went undercover at an adult bookstore and a gay bathhouse in an effort to prove to a local newspaper reporter that they had become a ‘haven for anal intercourse.'” Sounds promising!
