LaRouche actually finished ahead of Kucinich in the SD primary back in '04. It was sad.

For a brief moment in time, I worked on a campaign in New Hampshire in '92. The really, really fun scary ones were the Tom Laughlin supporters. Yes, that Tom Laughlin.

What? Billy Jack? Was this like Robert Redford in The Candidate, a fake campaign used to make a movie?

Indeed, the man, the legend . . . Billy Jack. And he was genuine. Or at least genuine in his desire to want to win the primary. He was very right-wing, but get this . . . he ran as a Democrat!

All I remember was the frothing-at-the-mouth nature of the supporters which contrasted nicely with the LaRouchians (LaRouchites? LaRouchies?) who were truly eerie.

I recall the original Billy Jack movie as being rather left-wing, but it's been decades since I saw it.

Recall it as being one of those Westerns where a Man With No Name knockoff comes and saves the poor townfolk from the Evil Rancher Who Owns Everything. Then again, that could describe 98% of Westerns ever made. And I (happily) know nothing of the sequels, which if I recall, included one where he went to Washington.

Billy Jack was also an ex-green-beret-turned-pacifist-turned-back-to-ass-kickin'-machine, wasn't he?

And that's really just scratching the surface. He was a very complex character. Many sides. Multi-faceted even.
