Kevin Barrett, the former University of Wisconsin-Madison instructor on Islam whose views on the September 2001 terrorists attacks on America created a firestorm of controversy, plans to run as a Libertarian candidate for Wisconsin's 3rd District seat in the U.S. House.
Barrett, of Lone Rock, created a national controversy in 2006 by saying that some U.S. government officials orchestrated the 2001 attacks. He has set up an Internet campaign site.
U.S. Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.) was elected to the 3rd District seat in Congress in 1996.
The right hate him, the left scoff at him, and I'm sure the libertarians don't want him identifying himself with them.
Heck, this might even be enough to bring McBride out of her hiatus.
