The Weirdness Continues: Virgil Goode for President?!?

President Virgil Goode? Oh, my Lord!
When I first saw the headline--in the Washington Post, for God's sake--I thought, "Oh, hell, I'm reading the Onion, not the Post." So I checked back to the top of the page and saw it really was the WP. So what's going on with this headline:

Ex Congressman Virgil Good Eyes Presidential Bid

Virgil Goode was the dumbest man in Congress while he was there--and we're talking about a bar so low that he had to dig a deep hole to get there--so now he believes he's qualified to be a Republican president. If you take a look at the current (and recent past) field, I suspect he has a point.

Here's what the Post says:

It remains to be seen whether Gov. Bob McDonnell will end up on the Republican ticket this fall, but it appears at least one Virginian has decided to run for president. Virgil H. Goode Jr. -- the former Virginia congressman and state Senator who switched from Democrat to Independent to Republican during his time in office — is apparently interested in the nation’s top job. Goode filed papers with the Federal Election Commission last week to create the Virgil Goode for President Campaign Committee. The form does not specify which party’s banner Goode will run under, but in 2010 he was named to the executive committed  of the Constitution Party, and last year the party unanimously adopted a resolution calling on Goode to run for president. He said at the time he would "consider it.'"

Who are these people and why are they so crazy?
