Tony Zirkle wants the Republican nomination for the Congressional seat from Indiana's 2nd District. Tony Zirkle is a dumbass.
He claims he didn't know very much about the group he'd been invited to speak to. He's apparently not very good at deciphering subtle clues.
He went on to defend his appearance thusly:
"I'll speak before any group that invites me," Zirkle said Monday. "I've spoken on an African-American radio station in Atlanta."
Yeah, that's comparable.
Mr. Zirkle ran also ran for the seat in 2004 against the incumbent Chris Chocola. At the time, Zirkle said he was "willing to debate the idea of returning the guillotine and lynch mob for those who prey on children under the age of 12". He was unable to get Chocola to debate him on that or any other subject.
Bonus: He's retired from the Navy. Anybody out there ever met this guy? Hmmm?
