Connecticut Senate candidate Peter Schiff (R) went a little off-message in a recent interview with the Washington Post, comparing his campaign to World War II and pledging to do the work of ten senators.
Schiff, who has a considerable fortune from investments, told the Post that he's "willing to interrupt" his career for the causes he belives in, comparing himself to a WWII soldier.
"It's not like I want my new career in politics," he said. "But I'm willing to interrupt it the same way that somebody interrupted their career and joined World War II and went off to fight the Nazis. I don't think that I'm that heroic, and I don't think I'm risking as much as a soldier. But it's the same principle."
"[M]ost of the other senators spend 90 percent of their time trying to
get reelected--raising money, doing what it takes to stay in the
Senate, right? I'm not going to spend any of my time on that. So I'll
be, like, 10 senators all by myself."
Sounds like all the ingredients for a new campaign slogan: "Peter Schiff: He'd be like 10 Nazi-fighting Senators."
