Conservative Spoiler?

Hot off the presses from WingNutDaily: Minuteman Project Founder, Jim Gilchrist, has said he will run for president in 2008 on the Constitution Party ticket unless the Republican Party presidential nominee is Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo. In other words, if he stays true to his word, he's running.

It's kind of an interesting possibility, really. Immigration is such a hot issue with the GOP base that it's serving as the wedge issue for the midterms. (And their boy Bush is letting them down by not being insane enough on the issue.) Were it to remain hot until 2008 (a big if, I'll grant), Gilchrist could be quite the GOP spoiler. Even the GOP might be hard-pressed to come up with someone who has wide appeal but is also as big a loose-screwed lunatic on immigration as is Gilchrist to make sure he doesn't pull votes away from them.

Plus, he's got christ right in his name! The Dominionists will be ever so pleased.
