Unfortunately, he's an unknown former Democrat from Vermont who has no organization supporting him. He also doesn't appear to have a web site and he's going the Howard Dean, grassroots route for funding.
But, it's a start. Dennis Morrisseau is a retired restaurant owner from West Pawlet, Vermont. Bernie Sanders is vacating his seat, and Morrisseau is running as a Republican. If he's elected, he promises to bring articles of impeachment against Our Leader.
"GOP candidate calls for impeachment" quotes him as saying:
"This leadership isn't very Republican and I don't think it's very popular with Vermont Republicans... Republicans in this state tend to be mind-your-own-business people, keep taxes low and government small... [Former VT Gov. Deane Davis] was the best environmentalist we had in this state... That's Republicanism in Vermont. We like small businesses. We're afraid of outsiders and large businesses. That's what I'm about.... I think I've got a great shot... There's been movement since the election, if you track the polls. That's not just Democrats, that's Republicans, too. Down in southern Vermont, [Bush] is reviled among Republicans."
If his message gets any further attention, expect the BushBots to use the fact that he was one of the founders of VT's liberal, anti-Vietnam War Liberty Union Party as well as the fact that he's a former Democrat against him.
