State GOP Chair John Sigler gets his victim on . . .

To be clear, I do agree with the GOP that Brian Pettyjohn's name should be placed on the ballot in the 19th District.  With a candidate withdrawn for over 100 felony charges and a duly nominated replacement, democracy is not served by playing politics with ballot access here.

Hi, I'm John Sigler, and I hate the
idea that anybody in America
could be disenfranchised at the
polls unless they're poor, black,
hispanic, Libertarian, Green,
Constitution, IPOD . . . .
I mean, you've got to have
standards, don't you?
That said, it is comical to hear John Sigler whine thus in the current GOP email blast:
Time is of the essence, and the Democratic machine in Dover is trying to squash our voice completely in the legislature. We must not let this happen! 

I cannot urge you enough to donate. No political party should be disenfranchised in our state, and the future balance of power in Dover hangs in the balance!
Now let's get this straight:  this is John Sigler crying, "Don't disenfranchise us!" right?

John Sigler of the same Delaware GOP that . . .

. . . voted to make ballot access more difficulty for Greens, Libertarians, and IPODians by raising the necessary registration totals . . .  
. . . voted to end fusion candidacies . . . 
. . . jerked around Libertarian candidates like Johnny Machurek and Margaret Melson with empty promises of support if only they would desert the LPD for the GOP (but really had no money or resources he was willing to commit) . . . 
. . . belongs to the same GOP that has fought to disenfranchise Libertarian and Constitution Party candidates in Pennsylvania, Virginia, Michigan, Oklahoma, and other states . . . 
. . . belongs to the same GOP that consistently tries to keep minority and poor people from voting in places like Pennsylvania . . . 

Yep, it's that John Sigler.

Because with the Delaware GOP disenfranchisement is only an important issue when it happens to them.

I would say that politically i am indifferent, the only thing i care about politics is the election being over. But seriously, do republicans think? They come out with a talking point and immediately when they do they are immediately shot down becuase of the ineptitude of their thoughts. They should be more like democrates and just do it and not say anything and hope no one catches them.
