The Onion nicely summarizes CC's objection to Bob Barr

(1995–2007) Trying to control the faith, sexuality, reproduction, drug use, and national allegiance of every single American. (2007–) Aw, Fuck it.

As President, He Pledges To:
Use his platform to apologize for things he supported as a Republican

Hey, I'm always open to listening to a good, heartfelt apology. But I'll have to see it being lived out before I'll put any weight on it.

Haha - no doubt! What happened with this guy? Did he have some kind of spiritual experience that turned him into a completely different person?

He'll be more of a non-factor than Nader this go round.

Yep. I left the Libertarian Party in 2001. At the time, I was an alternate to the LNC. The political director at the time was working on a plan to target congressional races with incumbent Republicans with particularly heinous (in the eyes of libertarians) political views, to try and pull enough Rep voters away and allow the Dem to win. His biggest target: Bob Barr. I find that particularly ironic, now.
