Libertarians for Hillary

Washington (CNN) - Libertarian vice presidential nominee William Weld lit into James Comey, saying Monday that his decision to announce a review of new emails was "disgraceful" and that the FBI director and the agency were "off the reservation."

Sure, one might consider what Comey has done as “disgraceful” without regard to one’s desire to see Hillary occupy the oval office.  But Weld offers more clues:

Weld blasted Trump with a reference to the "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" scene where a mob of villagers lob ridiculous arguments that their victim is a witch.

"Mr. Trump braying about this latest development reminds me of the guy in Monty Python who says 'She's a witch, burn her! Burn her!" Weld said, with a mock British accent. "It has no more content than that. And the point of that skit in Monty Python was that those townspeople were ignorant and stupid -- not that they were great."

Weld just called Trump supporters “ignorant and stupid.”  You know, Les Deplorables.

OK, so Weld displays the same contempt for the same large portion of the American population as does Hillary.  Is this enough to claim “Libertarians for Hillary”?

Camerota asked Weld if he thought that he and Johnson were drawing votes from Clinton and could end up tossing the race to Trump, but he argued that he was confident they were pulling moderate Republican voters away from Trump.

"My appeal is to Republican voters: Think twice before you vote for Trump," he said.

There you have it.


  1. In past elections I have had some respect for Libertarians with yard signs. Not this time, though.

  2. Has someone asked Weld if those poor souls rotting in prison for the same "crime" are also victims of witch hunts like Hillary? Hell, has Hillary indicated that she will pardon and let the Espionage Act among other expire? I will not hold my breath for either of these awful people to stand up against tyranny.

  3. It would have been nice to have libertarian Libertarian candidates.

    1. But they've got those ICKY libertarian principles.

  4. Can someone just shoot the Libetarian Party and put it out of its missery?
    Harry Browne must ne werping in his grave.
    If only the LP had the foresight to have nominated Ron Paul one last time. Sigh!
