- Attended my local GOP meeting tonight in which I got to hear John Padgett speak. And while I'm definitely supporting Jordan "Alex" Johnson for GAGOP Chair, I have to admit, this guy's a lot better than BJ Van Gundy. Plus, Padgett's a Dawg (for the record, BJ Van Gundy is a damned Techie). So there's that. Seriously, he was just a cool guy and had some good things to say. He also said the words "Ron Paul" at least 3 times, and laughingly talked about his Youtube notoriety. Regarding that, he said that mistakes were made, and he realized that now. So, for those of you keeping score at home, that's another one running that seems to want to embrace the Liberty wing. Are these guys seriously trying to out-liberty Alex? No, obviously not. But what they may be doing is this: trying to reach out to TEA party, disaffected regulars, and others who may be of the belief that the grassroots must be injected with this beautiful and organic energy and passion to keep itself energized. Even long-serving establishment types are starting to see the light on this. So I guess that leaves Seth Harp as the "Establishment (read: McCain, Romney, Priebus Republican)" candidate. Good. Luck. With. That!
- There aren't many bloggers out there sharper or more articulated than Jeremy Kolassa. As I once commented on one his posts, "[he] makes me want to be a better writer." He hits another one out of the park with his latest at United Liberty: "How the Sequester Torpedoed Conservatives' Credibility" Some hard truths, but this much is sure: any GOPers wringing their hands over a 3% cut to future growth for anything might as well be on the other side. Come to think of it, I think just about every Republican in DC with the exception of maybe a few dozen in the House and maybe upwards of a dozen in the Senate might as well be Dems. They suck, and I hate them.
- And in other news considered "suprising (and those quotes would be sarcastic finger quotes)," here's another example from UL of Republicans in D.C. blowing it regarding sequestration. Again, they suck, and why are they there again?
- Musical Interlude:
- Fin: Rand Paul is awesome, and possibly the only man that can save our country. That is all...
