Screen Shot 2014-02-21 at 4.33.39 AMNormally congressional candidates try their best to ride the fine line between appealing to their base, but not appearing too far left or right in order to keep the moderate, independent votes they need to get elected. It’s a sound strategy from a political view if not a bit sleazy. This is especially true if you are a Democrat running in a red or moderate state.

However House of Representatives candidate Mike Dickinson throws that strategy out the window. No. No, I take that back. He takes that strategy, pisses on it, sets it on fire and kicks it off a 14th story balcony where it lands on a carefully placed layer of metal spikes.

Here is Mike’s bio from his website,

Mike Dickinson was born and raised in Henrico County. He learned from an early age that hard work and perseverance would lead to success. He graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University, with the help of student loans, and established a successful career.

As a restaurant management consultant, Mike learned firsthand about the challenges facing small businesses. He knows that Washington’s uncertainty and gridlock coming has crippled the ability of our job creators to expand and plan for the future.

Mike believes Congress needs to get back to finding solutions to our nation’s problems rather than being stuck in a loop of partisan bickering and crisis management. As a business person, he understands that long term planning is required, not lurching from crisis to crisis.

That is why Mike is running for Congress. He will focus on fixing our economy and providing opportunities for the people of the district. He will ensure that our schools have the resources they need to ensure that the next generation has the same opportunities he had. He will fight for a fair minimum wage so an honest day’s work brings an honest day’s pay. With your vote, Mike can work to put our nation back on track.

Based on his Twitter timeline Mike is vehemently anti-gun. Well, he’s actually vehemently a lot of things based on his tweets. I almost want to believe this account is satire of an over the top liberal. Honestly I’m not 100% sure that it’s not a satire account. However, someone appears to be collecting very real campaign donations through the website, so there’s that. So who is this guy running against? Oh, just Eric Cantor.

Here are a few of the more outrageous anti-gun tweets,
