Bob Barr: Political Genius

From the American Spectator:

The important thing to keep in mind about the potential Barr threat is that it isn't so much a matter of what percentage of the vote he is able to garner, but the type of voters he wins. If Barr stresses spending, gun rights, and hammers McCain on campaign finance reform, he could cause problems for McCain by stealing disgruntled conservatives. But if instead he focuses on foreign policy and his support is comprised mainly of the anti-war Paul coalition, while he may win a lot of votes, the votes won't be coming from those who would potentially support McCain, and thus he won't present a real threat.
But since Republicans can snatch victory out of the jaws of defeat without the help of Bob Barr, I wasn't too worried to begin with. 

(On a personal note, someone gave my resume to an employee of a certain organization, and I have an interview tomorrow.  Since I didn't apply for the job, I have no idea what it is for really, but it has to be better than my mind-numbing state government job.  So anyway, send some good thoughts my way or to the Man Upstairs.)
