She wants to impeach President Obama, ran on a campaign platform that includes the colonization of Mars, and thinks the US educational system should focus on the works of Plato and Leibnitz. Meet Kesha Rogers, winner of the Democratic primary for Tom DeLay's old US Senate seat in Texas' 22nd district. While South Carolina Dems are still baffled about how to deal with Alvin Greene, their Texas counterparts are rushing to disavow Rogers, Time reports.
Rogers, a 33-year-old Lyndon LaRouche Youth Movement activist, campaigned on the slogan "Save NASA. Impeach Obama." She won 53% of the primary vote in an aerospace-industry-heavy district that includes the NASA Johnson Space Center. The state party has denied any support for her. "I can't explain the result," a Houston Dem said. "Stuff just happens sometimes, especially in races where not much attention is being paid." "I don't think the Democratic Party leadership is getting it," Rogers countered. "The people continue to see more and more economic devastation and they don't see any real leadership."
