I guess George Wallace would be their first choice again, but he’s uh, dead. Ten Commandments Judge May Run for Gov.. Guess I better phone Katie and let her know what “her people” down there in Sweet Home Alabama are probably all excited about the prospect of this wingnut f*cktard heading to the state house.

Ousted Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore said Friday he is considering running for governor in 2006.

I’ll be praying about it and considering it,” told reporters.

Moore was ousted in November 2003 for defying a federal judge’s order to remove his 5,280-pound Ten Commandments monument from public display in the state judicial building. He appealed his ouster to the U.S. Supreme Court, but lost.

If Moore were to run as a Republican, he could face a GOP primary battle with Gov. Bob Riley, who has not yet said whether he will seek a second term.
