We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
ha. I love that quotation, too. Too funny. Too creepy.
As for criticizing BD for listening to Rush... what's up with that? In order to do these links day after day, BD, NewsJunkie, and Barrister scan hundreds of sites, and they certainly don't limit themselves to conservative sites. They know as much from the liberal side as the conservative side, so 'D' hasn't a leg to stand on - whatever his point was.
