Disbarred, disgraced, and apparently delusional former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas has actually filed to run for governor in 2014.

"Candy" Andy still insists he did absolutely nothing wrong, although the county just added $1.4 million to the taxpayers' $5 million tab for Thomas' and Sheriff Joe Arpaio's "unholy collaboration" in their power-abusing fights against county political enemies.

Thomas' abuse of power also led to a three-member disciplinary panel of the Arizona State Supreme Court agreeing to his disbarment. Thomas still maintains it's still everyone else who's corrupt, not him.

The problem for Thomas is that no rational person believes that.

To that point, who do you think has a better chance of becoming the next Governor of Arizona, Thomas, or Clifford the Big Red Dog, famous for his role in the children's book series and television show named after him?
