Bwahahahahaha, Gary Peters, LOLGOP — June 10, 2013 at 1:29 pm

PPP polls @LOLGOP vs. Justin Amash for U.S. Senate, @LOLGOP wins.


A candidate for a new age

Public Policy Polling (PPP) released a poll today that, among other things, asked the question, “If the candidates for Senate next year were Democrat LOLGOP and Republican Justin Amash, who would you vote for?” The answer? LOLGOP won 23% to 22%.

Think about that just for a minute. Justin Amash is losing to a Twitter handle.

Here’s how PPP put it:

It is perhaps a sign of how dim GOP prospects in national elections are in Michigan that one of the party’s leading potential candidates for the Senate next year would trail in a hypothetical match up with a twitter handle. The person behind the well known liberal twitter handle LOLGOP lives in Ann Arbor and we find that LOLGOP would lead Congressman Justin Amash 23/22 in a head to head match. That sort of climate for Republicans may be why it’s been hard to get top tier candidates into the race for the open Senate seat there next year.

I asked LOLGOP about this new undeclared candidacy of his. Will you run, I asked?

I’m running if Amash does. Why? To make that point that anyone who thinks Paul Ryan’s budget that decimates Medicare is too generous would lose to Geocities site in Michigan. Oh, and I’ll spend all my campaign saying that and talking about how great Gary Peters is.

So, Eclectablog may end up being Election Central for LOLGOP’s Senatorial bid. I just thought I’d let you know that. And every ounce of our energy will be devoted to the defeat of the extremist libertarian Justin Amash and ensuring that Gary Peters is the next Junior Senator from Michigan. C’mon, it’ll be fun.
