Running for: U.S. Senate from South Carolina
Party: Democratic
Why she's nuts: He's clearly a Republican stoogeHe's unemployed and facing a felony obscenity charge, which, as politicians go, doesn't actually make him that nuts. But he didn't really campaign at all for the Democratic primary (no website, no yard signs), may have Tourette's, and seems to think he was the Democrats presidential kingmaker in '08.
Chances of winning?: Zero. He's running against Tea Party favorite Jim DeMint in a state that was the last to remove the Confederate Stars and Bars from its state flag and didn't ratify the amendment giving women the right to vote until 50 years after it passed.
