Recently, at a Missouri Roundtable for Life "town hall" event in St. Joseph, MOGOP Chairman Emeritus Eddie Martin shared a few thoughts on Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, the legitimacy of his ballot language lawsuits, and the involvement of Satan in the affairs of the state:
For those of you scoring at home:
- At least some of the Roundtable's legal actions against the state are, in Martin's own words, a "nuisance."
- Ed Martin told his audience that Secretary of State Robin Carnahan
- is "the devil," an agent of the devil or under the power of the devil
- "doesn't need to be honest" and "doesn't want to be honest"
- and is also one "smartest people in public life in America right now"
I bet the judges, lawyers and clerks will be glad to know that Ed Martin and the Roundtable are just wasting their time so that Ed Martin can feel good about himself.
As for the satanic control of Robin Carnahan -- well, I have no idea what to make of that.
Here's the text of what Martin said:
If you don't know this, you need to know this one thing: The Secretary of State in Missouri is the most anti-life, most obstructionist, most unpleasant, and one of the smartest people in public life in America right now.
She is very, very devious. She does -- with a, with a clever hand -- she does the devil's work [inaudible]. It is easy when you see someone who is a terribly unpleasant, you know, nasty, hateful person, you say, "Well the devil's got a hold of that person."
This woman, the devil, she's figured out how to really damage our efforts to do amendments to the Constitution, to do initiatives for other conservative, good government things. I mean, she will, she does everything for one thing in mind: politics of the left, and her own advancement.
And Robin Carnahan, you haven't heard the last of her, I assure you. She's going to be running for the United States Senate. And, you know, it's an amazing thing. But, we have sued her. And have put her on the spot. We've litigated against her. Some of it, to be candid, is nuisance. We're sort of tussled with her to try to keep her honest. To be candid, it doesn't work on her. Because she doesn't need to be honest, doesn't want to be honest. But we've done it.
What in the world are we supposed to make of this?
