I'm a leftist, commie agitator. I think we all know that. But I got some mad love for my right-wing brethren. What can I say...I need someone to Duck Hunt with. It is in this spirit of bipartisan co-operation that I offer the following:
Any reader of this blog knows I think pretty highly of Andrew Sullivan. He is a favorite of mine. Today, he has two posts up that I encourage my conservative friends to check out.
The second, offers some potential hope: Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman. I recently offered my opinion that Hunstman was the kind of voice the Republicans should listen to, and quite frankly, the kind I would like to have on the other side challenging my party. He's sharp. Every GOP'er should heed his warning: "No" isn't a solution.
To my Republican friends: Read the full interview with Hunstman. Sullivan is right. Your party became a party of tactics, not purpose. Don't get me wrong, you were damn good at those tactics. But in the long run, it has fatally wounded the Elephant. Come 2010 and 2012, you offer up the same old candidates who push the same old ideas, you are gonna get the same old results.
I am a bold figure, often seen powerwalking and crushing cans. I have been known to rock a microphone. I translate American Idol for enemy noncombatants. I routinely manage to infurriate DC Metro service personel. I woo women with my impressive name-dropping and my astounding ability at butterbean shelling.
When I'm bored, I take a case of wine over to my friend's house and get introduced to all the Puerto Rican girls who are dying to meet me.
I am a logical negativist who has propounded a set of laws that the world ignores, to its detriment.
I am an expert in Post-Civil War Reconstruction, a veteran of Greenwood Baseball, and an outlaw in Murrell's Inlet.
I once built a perpetual motion machine with Steve Roberts. I make homemade Sprite. I have been and remain on double secret probation.
The Russians call me "Vilnius Nastavic," because I require but one ping. I used to handle black ops for the United States Postal Service. I helped open Dog One and have doctored flight logs for rising 5-star colonels.
I have driven from Texarkana to Atlanta in 28 hours. I had no fatalities during my brief career on the safety patrol.
