Should Chris Dorner be the Republican Nominee in 2016?

While on the surface this may sound like a risky proposition, let’s think about it for a minute.
In his manifesto, Chris Dorner expressed his support for moderate Republicans like Jim Huntsman and Chris Christie, even calling Huntsman his candidate of choice. Dorner is obviously a liberal Republican and we can’t afford to pass up a minority member who is also a moderate Republican.
Dorner’s candidacy could be just what the Republican Party needs to turn its image around. I know all the negatives, but let’s look at the positives first.
Chris Dorner supports gun control and writes about evolving on gay marriage. He’s well versed in pop culture and made his manifesto go viral. Those are important skills in a candidate. While we don’t know his position on immigration, it’s quite possible that despite his dislike of Asians and Mexicans, he might actually be for it making him the perfect moderate Republican.
His support for Obama shows that Dorner has real bipartisan chops and could be able to unite the country after years of petty bickering.
Unfortunately Dorner is dead, but that’s no reason to rule out his candidacy. Running Dorner in 2016 is no crazier than the Republican establishment trying to legalize 11 million Democratic voters or sections of the Conservative blogsphere trying to follow Pat Buchanan into the Leftist Anti-War camp.
I have seen more positive mentions of Glenn Greenwald in one week on conservative blogs than I have in ten years, as bloggers educate themselves on the Great Satan’s murderous Drone Rampage against innocent Muslim women and children and they can shortly be expected to begin understanding why the 3,000 people killed on September 11 had it coming and how Israel starts all the wars.
So why not Chris Dorner? If we’re going to commit political, moral and intellectual suicide, let’s go out in moderate Republican style. The platform is already coming together. Yes to illegal immigration. No to killing terrorists. No to burning serial killers alive in cabins. Yes to internet gambling. Yes to legalizing marijuana. No to the pink elephants in the corner. Yes to peace in our time.
