STRANGE BEDFELLOWS

You know the old adage: Politics makes strange bedfellows. Well, here’s a great example. I attended both St. Charles County caucuses and Monday night I attended a US Senate candidate forum in Historic St. Charles. You won’t believe who’s joined forces now–the rowdy Ron Paul supporters (very recognizable from the caucuses) and John Brunner. It’s deja vu all over again, as Yogi says. So, has John Brunner turned to the libertarian side? Or has he bought the Paul supporters and volunteers? Or is this the new MO Paul-crowd strategy to defeat Congressman Akin? They were a bit more “respectable” at the Monday night forum, though. But their questions seemed to be more anti-Akin than pro-Brunner. Mr. Brunner is a shrewd businessman, and after his inflammatory rhetoric last night, it appears he is moving on the offensive and will do anything to win. It must be the aggressive businessman in him. I have some advice for John Brunner. Watch out with whom you ally.  And advise for the Congressman? You have a consistent conservative record to stand on. You don’t get the kind of endorsements and ratings you have by doing nothing, as your opponent charges. There are many informed voters out there who see the truth and have not drunk the koolaid offered by some campaign organizers. Caveat emptor—let the buyer beware and let the informed voter decide.
