(now updated)

Not sure what to make of this, but Lech Walesa -- yes that Lech Walesa -- has endorsed Adam Andrzejewski, a tea party favorite, in the Illinois governor's race. (Andrzejewski has been praised as "politically numinous" and "a Rubio" by Erick Erickson of RedState; he's also loved in Breitbart Land.)

Walesa spoke on Andrzejewski's behalf at a tea party event in Chicago on Friday; the event was sparsely attended ... but Andrzejewski is allegedly surging in the race for the GOP nomination, according to some conservative organization or other's internal poll.

Over here, the video embedded below is titled "Lech Walesa: 'America Is Moving Towards Socialism.'" He doesn't quite say that flat out, but, near the end, he does suggest that it's kinda-sorta doing that, and that government bureaucracies are bad, and that it would be nice if people could just buy health care with their own money.

If Andrzejewski wins this race, he'll be the next person on this list.


UPDATE: Zandar digs a big deeper and discovers that Andrzejewski's genius fiscal-responsibility idea is ending or curtailing the practice of sharing state tax revenues with local governments. Sorry about your fire department, East Overshoe, but I have to drown your tiny municipal government in a bathtub to prove a point!
