Linn: Kick GOP in the (testicles)



Linn_2 Max Linn wants you to donate to his congressional campaign and "Kick the Republican Establishment in The B---s," making Bay Buzz wonder if he's equating U.S. C.W. Bill Young to the family jewels of the Republican Party.

Young has held the District 10 seat Linn's seeking for about 38 years.

Max Linn's fundraising Web site,, now features this invitation and a corresponding video in which Linn repeatedly asks viewers to click the "Change Congress Now" button that links to a donation page.

On the video, he says, "This is your absolute last chance. Press the Change Congress button now and contribute. I mean, come on, you have an opportunity, we have an opportunity to kick the Republican establishment right between the legs, and take out the poster boy of what's wrong in America today."

He continues, "Take action now, or you're simply going to sit back and keep scratching your head and complaining about what's wrong. I'm not sitting down anymore. I'm standing up and I'm running for office against the most powerful, longest-serving Republican congressman in America."
