He had no business running in this race. Everything he says, is presented better (or more wingnutty) by his opponents Sharon Angle or Sue Lowden. And in a partisan party primary race, the more extreme the better.
Tarkanian has tried to get some tea party cred lately, but it hasn't work. In fact The Tea Party Express is making fun of him. Not good, in this year of "outsiderism and wingnutism".
In fact the only thing he's got going for him, other than his cool sexy Vegas area sports name, is that he's a guy. A dude. A man. A Bro. A penis.
Republican voters like men. Every elected Nevada Republican in federal or constitutional (state) office is a boy. All of them. in fact I think the last elected woman Republican is now in prison for murder. Yikes.
I don't think Lowden or Angle are men, but who knows. They present themselves as women, and that is a BIG downside, for Republican voters at least.
I'm not saying Republicans don't like women. The only way for them in lesbian bondage strip bars dressed up like Sarah Palin. (The GOP makes this so easy)
Anyway, Tarkanian ain't gonna win. You can count on that. Zeke Says So.
