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.
Hunt: Republicans already are overreaching...
From what I can tell, the Republicans are UNDERreaching with their puny budget cuts and not laughing Harry Reid out of town when he worried about his government funded cowboy poets convention... It's just sad. If it weren't for a few freshman pubbies like Allen West and Rand Paul, it could turn a guy to drink.
Big__Al ... Foxnews and Rupert Murdoch are struggling to give the appearance of being "fair, balanced and unafraid" which means that they need someone who will speak to the liberal side of the equation. Juan is a good choice, because his basic liberal naivete is less harmful than more rabid members of the leftist progressives. I watch the Fox Allstars every evening, and I notice that, when the august Brit Hume is one of the talking heads, Juan is nervous and uneasy. And well he might be. Brit is a seasoned, highly intelligent conservative who is formidable when aroused.
