"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

#MNGOP Paid $10,500 To Research Pot – Update

Aye carrumba.

Is now an okay time to say I told you so? Or should I sit back and allow 2 people to claim ALL the credit? At least I can say I never changed my tune, not everyone can do that.

Oh well, onward and …….

Anyways, that link is to a story that digs into the Republican Party problems created by the Sutton/Brodkorb/Carey regime.

Update: And to clarify: I’m not claiming I was the only one, nor that I knew of these details. Its just that there were a lot of us asking to see the books and to know what was really going on long before some people have taken to the glitz. Some of us have been raging against the machine for years and have been destroyed for doing so.  This shouldn’t be about grandstanding or credit for me or anyone, if it is for anyone, then you’re no better than the people who created the mess.

Its not about me, you, or them, this should be about what’s best for the party as a whole. That’s all I ever wanted. A better party. A party that isn’t run by an individual or by some weird alliance or cronyism. Dare I say where best practices rule the day, not who has won favor or who owes who.
