Samuel T. Cogley, Come On Down!


Meet Texas’ surprise Democratic primary winner, congressional nominee Kesha Rogers. What could go wrong?

South Carolina’s unexpected Democratic nominee for the US Senate, mystery man Alvin Greene, says he wants to play golf with Barack Obama. But in Texas, another surprise Democratic primary winner, congressional nominee Kesha Rogers, wants to impeach the President. So while South Carolina party officials are still unsure of what to do about Greene’s success at the ballot box, Texas Democrats have no such reservations – they wasted little time in casting Rogers into exile and offering no support or recognition of her campaign to win what once was Republican Majority Leader Tom DeLay’s old seat.

Rogers, 33, told TIME she is a “full time political activist” in the Lyndon LaRouche Youth Movement, a recruiting arm of the LaRouche political organization that is active on many college campuses. The LYM espouses LaRouche opposition to free trade and “globalism” (the UN, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund) and it also calls for a return to a humanist classical education, emphasizing the works of Plato and Leibnitz. On her professional looking campaign website, kesharogers.com, she touts the LaRouche political philosophy – a mix of support for the economic policies of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the impeachment of President Obama – and calls Obama a “London and Wall Street backed puppet” whose policies will destroy the Democratic Party. During the campaign, she was photographed carrying an oversized portrait of the President with a Hitler-style moustache penciled on his lip. [You mean it wasn’t a Tea Partier? Alert MSNBC! — Ed]

Another major LaRouche-inspired plank in Rogers’ platform is support for the colonization of Mars. “Help send me to Congress, and we can send our grandchildren to Mars!” was a Rogers’ slogan during the campaign.

Can we hold the impeachment hearings on Mars using the Fundamental Declarations of the Martian colonies as their legal basis? If so, I know just the attorney to represent the president!
