I always love hearing tell of a cracklin' good conspiracy theory, but I feel like it's been a while since I've come across a new one. This gem, though, from Republican Wes Riddle, is golden:
Riddle, a retired Army officer from Gatesville, wants to impeach Obama for "giving away" seven Arctic Ocean and Bering Sea islands near Siberia to Russia.Riddle isn't just some random teabagger—he's a random teabagger who forced his way into a runoff against former Texas Secretary of State Roger Williams in the TX-25 runoff. This is an open (and very red) seat, so whoever wins the GOP nod has an automatic path to Congress. Williams is heavily favored, but Riddle sure is a hoot, ain't he?
(Yes, even though those islands were ceded in 1991 under President George H.W. Bush.)
