A few years ago the Democrats were the ones who couldn't shoot straight. Now the GOP is clueless.
When the deadline for certification passed yesterday, Jim Ogonowski, the Republican leadership's choice to challenge US Senator John F. Kerry, was 82 signatures short of qualifying for the GOP primary ballot, according to the state's central voter registry.
But Ogonowski's campaign aides contend there are enough certified signatures at various town offices around the state not filed yet on the computerized registry to put him across the 10,000 threshold.
Of course even sillier is the idea that Republicans can't hold on to Republican seats in Republican districts, but this guy is going after Sen. Kerry's seat.
