See this is why you don’t hire Jesse James to be your campaign strategist…

Rich Iott, a wealthy Ohio businessman who somehow won the Republican nomination despite the fact that his name is very nearly “Rich Idiot”, has proved to himself to be more than an idiot by appearing in a photo, shown below, dressed as a Nazi Panzer squadron Officer.

No, because according to The Atlantic Magazine Iott has been in a Nazi re-enacter since 2003. Iott swears his Nazi-pretend time comes purely from his “historical interest in World War II” and that it was a “father-son bonding thing”. Wow I can’t believe people are upset about this!

I imagine Iott will probably pull out of the race soon. Ya know: to spend more time with his family, dressing up as Nazis.
