Halloween Fright! Barr Scares McCain

"Libertarian presidential nominee Bob Barr says Republicans are so afraid that he will spoil things for Sen. John McCain that the Republican presidential nominee is shadowing him, scheduling appearances in battleground states to match Mr. Barr’s own campaign events," reads the front page of the Washington Times’ front page, following yesterday’s editorial board where Bob met with some of the top minds of the paper.

"I suppose it’s a compliment," Mr. Barr told editors and reporters at The Washington Times. "It confirms that the states where we are spending our time are really the critical ones, in which the gaps between Senators McCain and [Barack] Obama are smaller than what we are polling."

"The two states we just found out about today are Ohio and New Hampshire, where McCain apparently added stops to his schedule in order to shadow us," said Mr. Barr, who in months past had polled in the high single digits in some states.

In other news, Bob picked up a quasi-endorsement from self-proclaimed libertarian Neal Boortz. "Voting your principles is never, is never throwing your vote away," said Boortz. "I don’t care if it is the only vote for that candidate, if you are voting with your principles, you are not throwing your vote away.  And the implication that you are is offensive."

"Right now, I’m probably going to vote for Bob Barr," Boortz continued, after harshly criticizing McCain for his support of a partial nationalization of our banking system.
