Bob Barr: Spoiler or Spoiled?

In his career in public service, Bob Barr has performed many important roles.

As a Republican candidate for the House in 1994, he rose to national attention when reports alleged that he had licked whipped cream off the breasts of two women at a charity event.

As a congressman from Georgia, the thrice-married Barr returned attention to the whipped-cream episode when, speaking in support of the Defense of Marriage Act, he argued that "the flames of self-centered morality are licking at the very foundations of our society."

As one of the managers of Bill Clinton's impeachment, Barr gained enough prominence to attempt a run for the Senate in 2002. But that effort fell apart at about the time Barr accidentally fired a .38-caliber pistol through a glass door at a fundraising reception.

As an elder statesmen, Barr returned to the public eye when, appearing in the film "Borat," he made a pinched expression after being told that the cheese he had just sampled came from a woman's breast milk.

Now beyond whipped cream and cheese, Barr is taking on his next role: John McCain's spoiler.

I don't think John McCain needs any help in
spoiling his own campaign he has enough help from various Pastors and other desperate souls. I would think Paris Hilton would be more of a spoiler than Bob Barr who gives a textbook definition of a deviant...
