McGovern endorses Varilek

Matt Varilek continues to prove he is the most over-hyped and over-endorsed candidate in decades. Former presidential candidate George McGovern has endorsed Matt Varilek.

From the Varilek campaign:

I have very exciting news to share today: former Senator and Democratic Presidential nominee George McGovern has endorsed our campaign!…

I’ve been a huge admirer of Senator McGovern’s for as long as I can remember.  As a war hero, as an elected leader and as a champion of so many causes, Senator McGovern has shown us the meaning of public service and I am honored to have his support.

Fidel Castro and George McGovern

No word yet if Cuban dictator Fidel Castro plans to follow McGovern with an edorsement of his own…

    For a second I thought Varilek was endorsed by Matt McGovern-Rowan. But I guess it’s the real McGovern.

    Well, that settles it. I don’t care how lacking in experience or substance this young man is; if McGovern supports him, then I’m all-in.

      I thought Varilek was having a fundraiser with Dorgen and Conrad also. They must have endorsed him also.

    Yeah, Democrats endorsing Democrats, Republicans endorsing Republicans. Who could have predicted that?

    The only reason for announcing such an endorsement is to separate himself from his primary opponent. For that purpose the endorsements are useful.

      Jeff Barth? Varilek would have defeated Jeff Barth with just Tim Johnson’s help.

      Varilek is acting like Barth is Herseth Sandlin.

      If Varilek was going to get news out of this he’d find a way to get on tv with those who are backing him.

    A 50 year old photo is the best you could do?

    I know you could go back 50 years on me and most anyone I know, and find some pretty embarrassing stuff. I have not lived an overly pious life. I did inhale. Lots and lots of times.

      When you are a US Senator and presidential candidate that believes it’s appropriate to go sit down with a thug dictator who does not respect human life and decency then I’ll say your photo compares.

      McGovern is in the last stages of his life so we all have to act like he is a GOD. He wasn’t and never will be anything more than an a liberal who did some disgraceful things in order to appeal to the left wing of the national democratic party.
