The Armies Didn’t Gather in Time to Help Rick Barber


The tea party candidate — who released perhaps the most bizarre of the very, very bizarre ads out of Alabama as of late — was crushed in the state’s 2nd District runoff Tuesday night. Martha Roby easily earned the Republican nod over Barber, who has equated the administration’s economic policies to slavery, and she will take on Democrat Bobby Bright in November. Barber, meanwhile, is probably venting his frustration to his Colonial-era BFFs this evening. [WP]
