Seldom is the question asked "How much would you pay to go out on a date with a Congressional candidate?" According to PinkDome, one enterprising young fella from Grand Prairie thought $25 a pop for the privilege of having dinner and a movie with him, with maybe a little miniature golf afterwards, was a good way to get a campaign off the ground. The fact that he was hoping to raise cash to run against Smokey Joe Barton in a Republican primary takes the whole goofiness factor up a notch for me. Read it and laugh.
