Reportedly, Art Robinson is seeking the chairmanship of the Oregon Republican Party.
Robinson just lost -- for the second time -- to Congressional representative Peter DeFazio, 59%-39%.
He lost big. Robinson has made a career out of kooky ideas, such as denying climate change and suggesting that radioactive waste ought to be sprinkled across America.
Nothing could make the Republican party in Oregon less relevant than to elevate someone like Art Robinson. I happen to think a second party is necessary to counter the extreme left. (And frankly, I'd like to see a third party, too.) But here Republicans don't seem to have learned a thing from last month's election -- which is good news for Democrats and Progressives, really.
