others running for president

Formally declared candidates  Randall Terry, pro-life activist from New York[13][14][15]

He has a primary ad up in Iowa.  Though I can’t figure something out:
June 29, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ — On a recent trip to Iowa, Randall Terry interviewed GOP Presidential hopeful Rick Santorum.
Pres. Candidate Rick Santorum’s Exclusive Interview with Randall Terry in Iowa

The “Democratic” candidate interviewing the Republican candidate on abortion.  Maybe it’s not over the airwaves, so running a radio program on the Internet is fine by the FEC.
Unrelated to the “extremism vortex” for Terry — Santorum  (note:  this article misspelled “DeParrie”‘s name):  Santorum better hope that this is not an “exclusive” interview — theoretically, he has votes to gain, right?

Fred Karger:  His running for the Republican nomination for president makes him the first openly gay presidential candidate from a major political party in American history. […]
Karger declared himself the “Anti-Romney” candidate, and later stated that he “plans to run a campaign specifically designed to throw a wrench into Romney’s run.”

Because when your recent political career is marked as a gay rights activist, the candidate you are specifically targetting in the Republican nomination is Mitt Romney?  No, that doesn’t make any sense to me.
Steve Scheffler, an Iowa delegate to the national Republican National Committee, has said Karger is part of the radical homosexual community.

Andy Martin.  In 2008, The Nation,[1] The Washington Post,[2] and The New York Times[3] identified him as the primary source of false rumors that then-presidential candidate Barack Obama was secretly a Muslim. In a later interview with CNN, Martin explicitly abandoned his view that Obama is a Muslim, but now asserts Obama’s real father is not Barack Obama Sr., but is Frank Marshall Davis, an African American journalist of the 1950s.
This is a logical leap because Frank Marshall Davis was involved in the Communist Party.  As it is… kind of?
In the pages of the paper, Davis articulated an agenda of social realism (social justice), which included appeals for racial justice in politics and economics, as well as legal justice. Davis became interested in the Communist party in 1931 during the famous Scottsboro boys and Angelo Herndon cases[5] and championed black activism to compensate for social ills not remedied by the larger white society. In the early 30s he warned against blacks accepting the Depression-era remedies being pushed by communists[6] but by 1936 Davis was listed as a contributing editor to the Spokesman, the official organ of the Youth Section of the National Negro Congress, a Communist front organization.

He’s just one of those people:

Martin has been labeled a vexatious litigant by numerous federal and state courts. As early as 1982, Edward Weinfeld, a federal judge for the Southern District of New York, observed that he had a tendency to file “a substantial number of lawsuits of a vexatious, frivolous and scandalous nature.”[10]
A number of these filings were anti-Semitic in nature. In a 1983 bankruptcy case, he filed a motion calling the presiding judge “a crooked, slimy Jew who has a history of lying and thieving common to members of his race.”[3] In another motion that year, Martin stated, “I am able to understand how the Holocaust took place, and with every passing day feel less and less sorry that it did.”[3] He went on to say that “Jew survivors are operating as a wolf pack to steal my property.” [20] When later pressed in an interview about his remarks, Martin claimed that the anti-Semitic comments were inserted into his court papers by malicious judges.[3]
In 1983, Jose Cabranes, a federal judge for the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut, issued a sweeping injunction barring Martin or anyone acting “at his behest, at his direction or instigation, or in concert with him” from filing any new action or proceeding in any federal or state court without first seeking permission from the court in which he wished to file that action or proceeding.[21] In his ruling, Cabranes noted that Martin had a tendency to file legal actions with “persistence, viciousness, and general disregard for decency and logic.” According to Cabranes, Martin’s practice was to file “an incessant stream of frivolous or meritless motions, demands, letters to the court and other documents,” as well as “vexatious lawsuits” against anyone who dared cross him, including court personnel and their families. For instance, in the midst of the proceeding, Martin sued Judge Cabranes himself, along with the judge’s wife. Martin then sought, unsuccessfully, to have Cabranes recused.

Roy Moore … There are actually a few big news stories from the past few weeks on the Roy Moore Presidential Campaign.
ITEM:  Aides Quit:  If the exploratory presidential campaign of former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore moves to full candidate mode, it won’t be with the same bunch of Iowa supporters. Last night senior adviser Zachery Michael resigned his position, and in an email reported Moore’s Iowa campaign chairman Danny Carroll also resigned. The Michael release also says Sioux City Pastor Cary Gordon also left the team.
ITEM:  He doesn’t like New York’s New Gay Marriage Law.

Jonathon Sharkey:  is an American actor, director, professional wrestler and perennial candidate who has run in multiple state-level and national elections. He has attracted media coverage due to his unusual public persona as a “sanguinary vampyre” and Luciferian, and run-ins with the law. Currently, he resides in Florida and has filed to run for President as a Republican in 2012.[1] He has run both as a Republican and on the ticket of his own Vampires, Witches, and Pagans Party.

Sharkey has described politics as “a cut-throat business”.[2] He has described his policy on crime as follows: “Certain criminals, instead of being put in jail, they should be brutally tortured and impaled….Upon them being found guilty of their crimes I’ll beat them, torture them, dismember them and decapitate them.” [5]

Sharkey strongly criticized President George W. Bush, whom he described as a “wuss” and a communist who was responsible for the deaths of innocent Americans in Saudi Arabia and Iraq. He has described a desire to try, and convict, and impale Bush, and agreed with Tucker Carlson’s description of him as “not simply a vampire, [but] a right-wing vampire”. His policy for dealing with drug dealers is to “go to Sicilian families and have them attack the drug dealers for me”.[6]

Sharkey once served on the Hillsborough County, Florida Republican Party’s Executive Committee. A. J. Matthews, who also serves on the committee, has described Sharkey as someone who believes in “Republican values” but said that Sharkey needs to focus on campaign issues rather than “extreme behaviors”.

Just another Republican blood sucker.  Hm…

While in Tennessee he had reportedly attempted to set up a colony for vampires.[8][11] He has also been accused of “brainwashing” a 16-year-old girl in Minnesota, whose family now has a restraining order against him, and has admitted to harassing another 16-year-old Minnesota girl online.

And of course, you all know Jimmy McMillian.  You might have missed his last youtube thingy.  A bit too trapped in a catch-phrase, I’m afraid.
