Oh pleasepleasepleasepleasepleaseplease let this be so!
Longtime Del. Bob Marshall is considering entering the race for Virginia’s open U.S. Senate seat and has gone so far as to seek legal advice from the attorney general on how to collect signatures for a statewide run.
Marshall, a Prince William Republican who narrowly missed the party’s nomination for the job in 2008, told The Washington Examiner on Tuesday that he still has people asking him to throw his hat in the ring but he didn’t have a timetable for making a decision.
“Bottom line, am I serious about this prospect? Yes. Definitely,” he said. “But I’ve still got to get all these ducks in line before I set the trip wire.”
To put it mildly, this would be entertainingly HIlarious. It also would be a great benefit to Virginia voters, who could see just how crazy the Teapublican’ts really ard. So…Sideshow Bob? Please let us know if you need any help with those “ducks.” Heck, it might be worth having a reunion of Jim Webb’s “ragtag army” for that reason alone! LOL

UPDATE: Aaron Blake tweets, “Marshall nearly beat former GOV Jim Gilmore at the GOP convention in 2008, but VA GOP holding a primary this time, so that hurts his chances.”
