Levi Tillemann is a smart guy. Went to Yale. Comes from a political family. Worked for Barack Obama’s Department of Energy. He’s written a book, The Great Race: The Global Quest For The Car Of The Future.

He is running for Congress in the 6th District in Colorado, and he’s gotten a few choice endorsements. Unfortunately for Levi Tillemann, the Democratic establishment has decided to back the other guy, corporate lawyer Jason Crow. In fact, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has actually urged Tillemann to drop out of the race.

What’s a guy like Tillemann gotta’ do to break through, then, when not even his party supports him?

Pepper spray himself, of course!

At first, I was like, “What the fuck are you doing, fella? Don’t pepper spray yourself in the face, dude!” But you know what? A guy who is willing to endure this much excruciating pain for a vote? I think I might give it to him. I mean, it’s dumb as hell, but it’s kind of effective.

Let’s see what you got, Jason Crow. Do you care enough about Colorado to pepper spray yourself in the face?
