Bob Barr: the man, the mustache
Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr has crashed the Republican convention.
What was he doing here? How did he get in? What did he think of Sarah Palin?
Barr said it wasn’t a good time for questions.
“I have to visit the men’s room,” he told Reuters.
Some analysts believe Barr could serve as a spoiler candidate by pulling votes from Republican John McCain in states like Georgia.
But Barr is significant in other ways.
“He is the first mustached American running for president since Thomas E. Dewey in 1948,” the American Mustache Institute wrote in a press release.
