Chris DeCarlo: Sheriff for the new Confederacy, we guess?

There are not a lot of reasons that we here at the Albuquerque Weekly Alibi would pay attention to an independent sheriff candidate in Virginia, but it looks like an embarrassingly stilted, way too long "rap video" by said candidate will do the trick.

Who is Chris DeCarlo and what does he stand for? A quick glance at the press release he sent us tells us that he wants to fight another Battle of Manassas and, in general, "fix America" by reigniting the "War Between the States." Which seems a little counter-intuitive, but maybe we just don't get Virginia politics.

A viewing of his video further informs us that he stands for horse riding, vest-wearing and an overall platform of old white guys playing cowboy. And rapping.

So, um, if any of that sounds good to you and you live in Virginia, maybe vote for him? As for us, we're glad we don't have to deal with this particular king of crazy out here in New Mexico. But keep up the good work, Virginia! We are very entertained. And just a little scared.
