More Libertarians shoot themselves in the foot

This one is in my own backyard. A liberterian declines an interview with a newspaper. The News and Observer is a pretty big newspaper in this part of the state, and a significant number of people still read it. For all of the effort (ridiculous ballot access requirements in NC, difficulties getting media time, expense of ads, and so forth) that third party candidates have to put into starting a campaign much less gaining media attention and public support, you'd think a half hour interview would be an offering of gold. At least get a palatable, reasonable libertarian position out there.

And this is a two-way race, even.
