Obsessed, no. But he and Rush are, for me and a lot of people, the current leadership of the Republican party and conservatives in general. I can't think of a single strong leader in the Republican camp right now who is representing that point of view. Who do you see as the current leader of the Republican party, or the conservatives? Palin?

People are angry; especially people who are watching the Republican party collapse and who witnessed the last election from the losing side. It's a big pill to swallow, hell even Palin walked out. Did you hear she's getting divorced? Yike, what's Todd gonna do?

I went to lunch today with an ex-Marine who has a pretty interesting point of view. He's 100% disabled, so he's been using the (his words) "socialist VA medical system" heavily. He said (I paraphrase slightly, I can't recall word for word): "I was a Republican my whole life until 1/2 way through Bush's second term. I just didn't like the direction things were going, but I couldn't go Democrat so I registered Independent and voted for Obama. I don't know what the big deal is about having the government run healthcare. I've been getting government healthcare since I was discharged and it's been fine."

I don't want government run health care either, but I do want reform. Before Obama was elected I'll bet you couldn't get 3 people in the country to say they thought the system was fine the way it is. Now this issue is simply a lighting rod for all the anger over the election; the uproar has nothing to do with health care at all.

I guess I'm a "problem", I'm wearing khakis and a polo shirt today. I have a crew cut too. The old stereotypes really don't fit anymore on either side.

Not even here in SF. I only see tie dyed tourists.

Yes, the current uproar is about government health care reform. These people know how f&cked up it will be and who will pay for it. I'll give you a hint, it ain't the people that voted for Obama. Your Marine story is interesting, but misleading. Bush always had good support from the troops. I'm glad he likes his government health care. I don't want it, and I don't want to pay for it. Simple as that. If you do then you pay for it and sign right up. Why do the Repubs need one or two 'leaders'? Aren't they all supposed to be leaders? Do they need one leader and then the rest just follow? Isn't that what you Liberals cried about, that Bush was the leader and everyone else was just blindly followed? Now they need another 'leader'? Please make up your mind. Yes, you are obsessed with people that haven't been elected, nor will they ever hold office. Maybe they speak so close to the truth that is bugs you. Olbermann is a complete a$$hole, but I never heard you complain about him even once. I guess he is an a$$hole you agree with? If the government wants to 'fix' health care, then help the free market fix it. They will not fix it by creating a bloated mess and then taxing everyone to pay for it. What is the rush all of a sudden to pass a 1000 page bill that nobody even read? Did you know the deficit will be at least 1.8 trillion dollars this year? how much bigger do you think that will get? Conservative estimates are at least 350 billion more if this mess passes. Your Prez is pissing people off. They held off with the first mess, the 'stimulus' that was a waste. They aren't staying quiet for this, and I don't blame them a bit. It sucks and there is no way around it.

I see people with tie-dye clothes occasionally but I find that a few warning shots and a release of 3 attack trained Rottweilers usually runs them off.

We all know they are FBI agents in drag, so you have to protect the compound at that point.

I don't mind that they come around. They usually drop a few shoes, cell phones and bottles of Chardonnay as they flee in panic.

How stylish Ken, I'm wearing "dirty denim" carpenter pants that are in fact really pretty grubby looking from changing a feedwater valve positioner, a black Harley Davidson garage style shirt and of course my trusty hand made in Spokane Washington White's logger boots, also with a more or less crew cut and beard because I haven't shaved for a week.....


And I like Bombay Saphire!!! however I like it on the rocks with some San Pelligrino or Perrier sparkling mineral water. Washes down the ol' brie and apple slices you know..
