Who says Libertarians don’t count?

Libertarian Party candidate Allen Buckley got 127,723 votes (3%) in the Georgia Senate race, enough to throw Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss into a runoff with Democrat Jim Martin.

Chambliss voted for the $700 billion bailout. Should have listened to me, senator!

UPDATE: Ace wants his readers to donate to save Chambliss’s seat. I’m having a hard time working up any real enthusiasm for that. His constituents were bombarding his offices with phone calls and e-mails begging him to oppose the bailout. He didn’t listen. He pays the price. And if part of the price is a veto-proof Senate majority for Obama, well . . . whose fault is that?

These out-of-touch big-government Republicans commit political suicide and then come running to the conservative base expecting help. Screw ’em. Sen. Richard Shelby provided a solid argument for his vote against the bailout. Why didn’t Saxby Chambliss listen?

UPDATE II: I’ve been watching this YouTube video of the last debate with Chambliss, Martin and Buckley, and you can see how Buckley (an attorney and CPA) slams Chambliss from the right. Martin — he’s just feeble. Should have been a Buckley-Chambliss runoff. And if I still lived in Georgia I’d have voted for Buckley, who at least tells the truth about entitlements bankrupting the country.
