It is now being reported – as if this were actually newsworthy – that Bradley Manning, who now calls himself Chelsea (though, to the best of my knowledge, he/she has had no gender-changing surgery), has filed to run for the U.S. Senate in Maryland.
You might recall that Manning was in detention, then prison, for a total of 7 years (his/her 35 year sentence was commuted by President Obama) for handing hundreds of thousands of military documents, a great many of them classified, over to Wikileaks, which then published them.
Evidently, Manning feels that this, along with his/her rich history of emotional disturbance, including two suicide attempts, makes him/her qualified for the U. S. Senate.
Hmmm. Someone who engages in legally actionable behavior and has emotional problems in the senate?
Y’know, now that I think of it……….
