David Barton For Senate

Will David Barton be the next Senator from Texas?
It looks like there is a movement afoot to recruit David Barton to be the next United States Senator from Texas.  The movement has a Facebook page with over 1000 members

According to this website Barton has not ruled out the possibility.  It also claims that "David Barton would be an incredible U.S. Senator." We will see how this all plays out.  

Barton's possible candidacy reminds me of a Gordon Wood quote: "If someone wants to use the past to change the world, he should forgo a career as a historian and run for office."

Warren Throckmorton is following the story closely at his new blog at Patheos.
