NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (StarNewsOnline.com) — New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger is no longer a member of the Republican Party.

Berger submitted an application to the county Board of Elections Thursday afternoon to switch back to the Libertarian Party, according to county spokesperson Charles Smith.

Berger ran for commissioner in 2008 as a Libertarian and lost, but switched to the Republican Party before his successful election in 2010. Recently, the New Hanover County GOP has spoken out against Berger.

Several Libertarians were slightly injured recently when they all tried to exit their clubhouse simultaneously during a group panic attack.

Although still visibly shaken, John Q. Public, a long-time member, recounted his experience ………..

“We had heard some talk that Berger was attempting to switch back and we were just about to vote in a new “no-take-backsy clause” when the Board of Elections notified us it was already too late. I can’t even begin to describe the crazy blind panic that followed! The next thing I remember is all of us running at the same time for the exit in order to get out of there! It was every Libertarian for himself!””

Three of the members were wedged so tightly into the doorframe a rescue squad had to use a jaws-of-life device to expand the doorframe enough to release them. Although only three of the members were injured physically, a spokesman for the party has informed us that all of them will seek professional counseling for their psychological trauma.

So what? Berger is still an idiot. He was originally a Libertarian, an idiot. Switched to the Republican Party in essence to get elected. A bigger idiot. Now, back to the Libertarian Party and guess what? He will wake up tomorrow and still be an idiot.

If I were chairman of the county Libertarian Party I would discourage any endorsement for Him and I would certainly not welcome him back with open arms. He is a huge liability to any credibility the Libertarians try to achieve.

Of course, Berger has the right to maintain membership in any party he so chooses just as the populous has the right to shun him.
