Basil Marceaux For Governor, Ctd

Allahpundit grins at Marceaux's official campaign ad:

And so, after a months-long trek up the slope of a mountain of zany campaign ads, we finally reach the summit. Nothing will top it, my friends; even Dale Peterson’s Winchester can’t compete with the next governor of Tennessee mumbling his policy platform while misspelled graphics (“vegitation”?) fill the screen. My only question: Is this just Marceaux being Marceaux or is he actually winking at his own goofiness here? I want to believe it’s the latter, but…

And yet the wonderful thing about Marceaux is that he does represent a core constituency. Aren't his views on gun-control identical to Glenn Reynolds'? Isn't his nostalgia for the Jim Crow south one strand of Southern conservatism that now dominates the GOP? Aren't his views part of what Palin calls the "real America"? It seems to me the right cannot have it both ways. If this man's views make him a joke, then why isn't the GOP as a whole a joke?
