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.
Very little seems to frighten Sen. Lieberman. He reminds me a little of Sen Daniel Patrick Moynihan. He's too smart for the rest of the Democrats and he makes them nervous, as Pat Moynihan did. Brains are not common in the ranks of either party, but very rare in the party of the Left.
