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.
Off topic a bit, but Mr Elf ears ( aka Tim Geithner ) may be leaving. Another rat jumping ship, maybe he can find some work in the north pole as a dentist.
We need to buy rope, lots and lots of rope for these rats!
Hey if he accidently wins, perhaps he could pick Huckaby as VP and we'd have rock guitar and bass players in the WH. They'd just need to place a drummer and perhaps another guitar/keyboard player in the cabinet and we'd have us a WH rock band. Just think of the possibilities, our top political leaders could play stuff like: We will, we will rock you, or perhaps We are the champions, my friends...or other songs not by Queen.
McCotter is definitely interesting to listen to, well-versed and dedicated, usually, to First Principles.....but his union positions here in Michigan - namely his odd commitment to upholding card-check - is troubling..... very troubling. He'll bear watching, but I, too, am looking forward to the debates in which he participates.
