Tom the Tanc Thanks and Tanks Out

Tom Tancredo - No AmnestyAs B4C reported last night, the end was near. Now it’s official: Tom Tancredo has dropped out of the race. He will be remembered (or not) for bringing the issue of illegal immigration to the forefront, as far as the GOP Presidential campaign was concerned. But his single note candidacy never really caught on, since his rivals adopted his rabid anti-illegal stance, leaving little to differentiate himself from the rest of the pack.

Two months ago, on October 28, 2007, The Tanc announced that he would not be seeking re-election for his congressional seat (Colorado’s 4th District), so his failed Presidential bid is Tancredo’s swan song. His legacy will be written by, or ignored by, historians. The Tanc is, literally, history.

According to the firecracker of the web, Michelle Malkin, Tom Tancredo declared victory before ending his campaign in a blaze of irrelevance.

“The Tancredo campaign has already won.”

What else can I say, but “good.” Take Hunter (who I do respect), Cox, Keyes and Paul with you. None of you have a ghost of a chance.

Update: What else can I say? “Good riddance.” This non-entity endorsed Mittens. If you have nothing wise to say, Tommy, just shut up. Good riddance to bad rubbish. Sell out. Traitor.

Update 2: Moar reaction from Race 4 2008, the sauce for the very latest campaign news.

Update 3: Upon reflection, the Romney endorsement makes sense in perverse sort of way. Both Tancredo and Mittens hired illegals to labor at their respective mansions. Hypocritical high fives all around!

  1. As much as I disagreed with Brownback’s position on illegal immigration, I respected him, and I don’t ever recall him speaking the way you do of his opponents or those with whom he disagrees. You’re doing him a big disgrace by speaking this way of his opponents in the manner you are, under a blog with his name. Shame on you.

    Well said!

    Shame on you.

    Ouch. So should I assume that you don’t respect me? Crushed.

    I hereby apologize for speaking my mind. Perhaps I should be more politically correct in the future.

    *mulls it over*

    NAAAHHHH! Psycheout don’t play that.

  3. Another one bites the dust. Dr. Pauls still in and still out raising money than the rest of the intact field.

  4. Yeah well look how much money junk bonds made in the 80’s. Just cause people are throwing money at something doesn’t mean it isn’t a crack pot, drug using, pro-Articles of the Confederacy, conspiracy loving, anti-American presidential candidate.

  5. Although “Shame on you” is politically incorrect, it doesn’t remove my respect for your human dignity, though you show very little of it calling a man “rubbish” and joining the politically correct bandwagon by calling his views “racist” as you have before.

  6. Ah, thanks for your clarification, Michelle. Now your comment makes more sense. I guess we’re BFFs again. Thank goodness!

    I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! 😀

  7. Michelle, my belle
    These guys here run a blog that spreads hell,
    damnation too
    Included in the cost, but still they speak poo
    They are some students that need attention,
    yet their comments are too lame to mention
    For their song remains the same,
    they will have a reunion in a telephone cell,
    3 years after even Brownmback left the game
    (have fun beeing there and a cheap hooker on me guys)

  8. Tancredo raised more money and held out longer than Brownabck. Not to mention when Brownback got out nobody noticed outside of this blog and his campaign blog.

  10. […] — Psycheout @ 4:03 pm Tags: border, hypocrisy, polygamy I like irony.  Tom Tancredo’s endorsement of Mitt Romney took many by surprise.  But the surprise became astonishment when it was revealed […]
