Former Basketball Player Ends Congressional Bid As It Began: Crazily

Illustration for article titled Former Basketball Player Ends Congressional Bid As It Began: Crazily

Remember Kevin Millen? The former Georgetown basketball player no one remembered who ran for Congress in Tennessee on a campaign of paranoia and family values and batshit insanity? He lost. But at least he's fired off one last batshit insane email.


We're really sad to see that our new favorite politician lost in the primaries because he would've added a certain zest to the GOP—possibly giving Anthony Weiner someone at whom to shout from the House floor. Here's hoping he refocuses his political aims and seeks a lesser office in his home state, because we really grew to like receiving emails like this several times a week:

Good Morning Everyone,

I will be asking each person to realize what they have done by not voting for Kevin Millen. The first thing you have done is allowed each black constituents to tell white people bow down and apologize to me for slavery, cracker. Secondly, you will be allowing a health care bill that will hurt All Americans, to be instilled in the United States of America. All Republicans in Memphis have turned this Republican Party into the dumbest and weakest Republican Party ever. You have allowed the judicial system to keep violating your constitutional rights. You have allowed the police to keep violating your constitutional rights. I tried to help, but people say it's your first time running for office, that's why I didn't know you. How many people knew Harold Ford Jr.? How many people know Steve Cohen? How many people know any of the city council or the county commissioner? How many people even know any of the judges? Some say you were not on T.V. T.V. is nothing, because I knocked on doors, put out flyers, email all business in Memphis and around the U.S., to try to make Memphis more attract to recruit more business. They said the money issue some Republican spent almost 3 million dollars and still didn't win. They chose a clodpoll for the democratic party and a idiot to win the Republican Party. O'well they want to be a bunch of faggots and idiots, you can't change what doesn't want to be changed. You cannot help nothing that does not want to be helped. You can try to hamper a person from moving ahead by telling lies, pulling up signs, and people believing lies to make sure that person does not move ahead. This is why I only had 1199. Life goes on and again, thanks to all the voters whom wanted a serious candidate that was going to stand up for Tennesseans especially Memphians. Since every wants to be experiments in Tennessee, you all have chosen the right two candidates to represent the parties. Yes, you all have chose two experiments, so that they can experiment on you. Memphis City Schools just might do another policy to hamper the youth, because these people enjoy making their youth illiterate. Experiment, extolled xen permitted enourmous rights in massive extrinsic negative times...reread the web page because it's coming down very soon...

You hear that Tennessee Republicans? Kevin Millen is going to find out why you didn't vote for him and ask you personally to explain your reasoning. So be on the lookout and lock your doors.
