Mary Lou Bruner, a 69-year-old retired teacher who has asserted that President Obama was a gay hustler to support his drug habit and said Paul Ryan's facial hair made him look like a terrorist, lost her bid for a post on the powerful Texas State Board of Education.
The seat would have given her a lot of say in what every school kid in America learned and she had been heavily favored to win, so this was dodging a bullet even if the ultimate winner is also a Republican. There are Republicans, then there are Republicans, and that guy (though likely to prevail in the conservative district) will still have to defeat a Democrat.
Exposing her for who she really is helped a lot—she had received 48% of the vote the first time around to her nearest opponent's 31%. In the run-off, she lost by about 18%.
Bruner has claimed the flood that led to Noah's Ark is what killed the dinosaurs and that Democrats murdered JFK. The list goes on. She's nuts. And now, she's double-retired.
