At least a few of these, however, are probably just items on his own personal wish list. It seems Marceaux, a resident of Soddy Daisy, Tenn., is no stranger to Hamilton County Criminal Court. A call placed to the court clerk's office didn't yield much in the way of details, but Pith found out that Marceaux has pleaded guilty to vandalism, possession of drug paraphernalia and reckless driving. Those are just the charges for which he was penalized. For a handful of other alleged crimes, he was found not guilty by reason of insanity: Violating the financial responsibility law on four separate occasions (insurance), driving an unregistered vehicle (twice), speeding and theft of property. Letters of need for involuntary committal were issued, but it isn't clear that he was ever actually placed in a psychiatric hospital. In some ways, his scofflaw's disregard for vehicle registration and insurance laws makes him more Tea Party than any of the other candidates. He's thumbing his nose at Big Government.
So, yeah, it could be argued that Basil Marceaux is nuttier than squirrel turds. But this year it seems like you could do a lot worse with your vote (HaslamWampRamsey).
Also, "will the world tell President Bush to stop this slavery operation?" Basil will. Will you!?!
