He's such a terrible candidate, yet you know if wins, the usual suspects (ie. BaseballCrank) will fall in line and support him anyway.

Am I alone in wanting Blankenship to win this primary?  Let me count the ways:

  • Entertainment value. More Chinapeople ads please.
  • I want Democratic majorities to combat Trump without far left wing policy that goes with it. More Manchins please.
  • Manchin would beat Blankenship, who would go the way of Christine O'Donnell.
  • The Senate could/would refuse to seat a convicted Felon.

Of course some of these thoughts were around in 2016, and...

As to the entertainment factor, I already am on a ride I don't want to be on, so I might as well get the entertainment out of these ridiculous candidates.

I was wondering why people disliked BaseballCrank.  So, I went to check his Twitter and noticed that I had him blocked.  Is he a big gun nut or just a run of the mill political troll?

I'm pulling for Blankenship to win the primary for similar reasons.  It would be like Roy Moore but better.

I just don’t trust WVa voters.

I truly don't believe the GOP wants to deal with Blankenship in the Senate along with the headaches he would bring to the party.  He would be a stain with no upside.

They won't want to, but they totally will if he wins.

I think you're right, which won't help them attract voters on the fence and will give anti-Trumpers an easy target to pin alt-right stereotypes against.

West Virginia is turning into the next Alabama.

Almost, well not quite, ok not really very near, heaven?

I engaged him once on Twitter during the Roy Moore campaign and he was explaining away how, despite Roy Moore being an accused pedophile and horrible human being, he had no choice but to support him over non-horrible human being Doug Jones because Roy was an R and agreed with him on some of the issues.

Tribalism at it's finest. He's a hack.

He was a one-time nevertrump.  Those are the one's that break my heart. 

The party won't be saved by cowards.

and yet I would note that the only thing about Blankenship that Trump criticized was that he couldn't win.

At a bare minimum we got Cocaine Mitch from Blankenship - a name I look forward to using in the future.
