Blogger Bruce Carroll, aka "Gay Patriot," Seriously Considering Primary Challenge to Lindsey Graham

Interesting.

This is a tough one for me. Obviously Bruce Carroll would be much better for the country and our progeny, but, on the other hand, then he'd be moving up ahead of me in status.

Can I support this? Is it so wrong just to root for all of your enemies, and your friends, to fail? Is that asking too much?

I'm just kidding of course. I don't root for my friends to fail. That would be terrible. I only root for my enemies to fail.

I root for my friends to struggle.

That Joke... is All Me, except for the whole idea of it.

Andy Breckman, a producer of the Monk show (maybe the creator?), began his podcast with this benediction:

Dear Lord

May My Show Succeed
And May The Shows of My Friends Fail
And Yet May I Still Be Perceived

As a Team Player

Amen.

No, seriously. Their moderators (the one guy "streiff" in particular) are stating that it is their "moral obligation" to "denounce sin" wherever they encounter it, and a vote for an openly gay man would be an act of immorality.

I once interviewed Bruce Campbell on a freelance assignment. He was pleasantly surprised I had watched every one of his movies in preparation. The kids loved 'Bubba Ho-Tep'. My personal favorite (aside from Army of Darkness) was a little-known indie crime flick he starred in called 'Running Time'. It was a heist drama that played out in real-time; that is, every minute of the movie approximately captured one minute in real-world time. Bruce was The Awesome.

154 This is how we will take this country back.

1. By marginalizing the party machines and the type of idiots that get all weepy eyed talking to TFG after four years of his crap (I'm referring to Noonan's piece about the dinner.) Keep them guessing at what lie they need to tell to get reelected, and maybe they will accidentally tell people what they really believe.

2. Using this new avenue for political success where you don't have to start your career as a senator's son or running for city council sucking up to some corrupt local machine. With the internet, for the first times since the pamphleteers of the 19th century, people can build a reputation and name in the political field as a stepping stone to public office that reveals more about a potential candidate than how well they can kiss ass, lie, and raise money.

The internet is the ied factory of political warfare and the left has way more to protect from too much knowledge. And, their principals are awfully susceptible to readily available facts.
