THIS Is Why I Voted For The Guy

I may not agree with all his politics. He may be a Libertarian. But the following post from Max Longley's blog reveals precisely why I had to vote for him in the 2004 race for U.S. House. (That, and he was pro-life, anti-war, and anti-death penalty. My kinda guy.)

Here's the post:

Could it be? It seems that the guy who leaked the identity of Valerie Plame is Republican political operative Karl Rove.

It's always the guy you least suspect, isn't it?

Let the partisan bickering begin. I can guess how this will play out:

MAUREEN DOWD will say that this incident proves (as if proof were necessary) the absolute depravity of all Republicans.

AL FRANKEN will have a guest on his radio show with whom he will debate the important question: Is Karl Rove the worst traitor since Benedict Arnold, or do we have to go back even further, back as far as Cataline, to find a more outrageous betrayal? (Judas isn't even in the same league, because he wasn't a Republican).

ANN COULTER will remind readers that Karl Rove's minor pecadilloes are as nothing compared to what Democrats have done. She will then give a list of famous Democrats who betrayed their country, from Alger Hiss to Osama bin Laden (he's a Democrat, of course).

BRENT BOZELL will ask why the mainstream media is paying so much attention to Karl Rove, while ignoring the Berkeley, California city council's recent vote to change the name of Thomas Jefferson High School to Shaka Zulu Revolutionary Academy.

DAVID BRODER will, as usual, do a column urging bipartisanship. Broder will call on both Democrats and Republicans to forget their petty quarrels and unite against their common enemy, the taxpayer.

Why doesn't this guy have his own TV show coming on after the Daily Show?


  • That guy is, in a word, awesome.

  • Post something about John Roberts, darn you! I wait with baited breath for your opinions - and it really sucks to have a cricket on the breath, so do it quick!
