Ken Miller’s Peculiar Campaign Comes to a Wal-Mart Near You


I have to admit that Ken Miller’s campaign certainly has a weird energy to it. I don’t have any idea what the hell they’re trying to accomplish, but they’re certainly active in their fluorescent green shirts.

The strangeness of the Miller campaign is certainly on display this week, with a new event strategy: shopping at Wal-Mart.


Having gone to high school in Laurel and having some incredibly fond memories of its downtown area, I can’t decide how I feel about Miller using a campaign event to encourage his followers to shop at an enormous corporation based in Arkansas rather than promoting local business.

Most importantly, though, it just seems strange—like almost everything about Miller’s campaign.
