Tony Zirkle, Republican candidate for Indiana’s 2nd congressional district, was “soundly defeated” in yesterday’s primary election, coming in a distant last. Zirkle recently delivered a speech to the American National Socialist Workers Party (ANSWP) on the 119th anniversary of Adolf Hitler’s birth, flanked by a large flag with a swastika, a giant photo of Hitler, and men in Nazi uniforms. Zirkle responded to criticism of his speech by railing against the “great porn dragon” and its influence over Jews. The Washington Post’s Al Kamen asks: “Maybe the birthday gambit reduced his vote total?” Perhaps.
