What's the over/under on how many votes this guy gets in next March's GOP Senate primary?
[Larry] Kilgore, of Mansfield, doesn't say what state he plans to run in (he has endorsements from a legislator in Montana and a congressional candidate in South Carolina) but one can presume he plans to run in the Texas Republican primary against incumbent John Cornyn.
Kilgore got about 50,000 votes in the 2006 GOP primary against Gov. Rick Perry, snaring almost 8 percent of the primary turnout.
His issues are mostly grounded in the Bible and are centered on ending abortion. Here are some of Kilgore's positions:
Judges shall carry out the death penalty against murderers, including those who abort a fetus, within 24 hours of conviction. Crimes of other bodily injury would result literally in an eye for an eye.
Adultery with a married woman would carry the death sentence.
Public use of vulgar sexual language would result in flogging.
"Judges will flog more severely those convicted of transvestism..."
The state should stop spending money on the "government indoctrination of children" also known as public schools.
Last, but not least, "Texas should secede because the U.S. has sealed its doom."
Well, at least you know where you stand with him - most likely, in the stocks, awaiting a date with the flogger. Just one question: Would it be a crime for a judge to enjoy flogging a transvestite? And if so, would it be punishable by flogging? We could have an infinite loop problem here.

Dear Mr. Kuffner,
I am Larry Kilgore's media coordinator. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions about his campaign.
I would like to direct you to Mr. Kilgore's blog where a supporter left this message:
"It appears from his web site Larry Kilgore will do his part. Voting is up to the electors."
The Republican citizens in Texas have an opportunity to elect Larry Kilgore as their candidate for US Senate in the March primary. Mr. Kilgore is a Christian who will take a bold stand for righteousness. Let's pray Texas will appreciate the opportunity God is giving them to have Mr. Kilgore serve Texas in the US Senate.
There is quite a bit of difference between Sen. Cornyn and Mr. Kilgore. Mr. Kilgore does not support the war in Iraq, and his political platform is based on a return to Biblical Law. Mr. Kilgore is also an advocate for Texas to once more be a sovereign nation.
Please see: www.TexasSecession.com for more info.
Thank you for your interest in the Larry Kilgore for US Senate campaign.
Dear Ms. Wittman:
Suppose I wanted Texas to secede so that we could become a Communist, atheist, Spanish-speaking country unlike the imperialist pigdog Yanquis en el norte. Should I vote for Larry Kilgore, or for John Cornyn?
Thank you very much,
