So anyway... McCain campaign was an expensive catastrophe. Not top 11 but pretty f'ing expensive.

Who says the revolution is going to be a conservative one? Maybe the liberals will all rise up and throw ya'll down first.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Really? It's pretty simple really. First of all, in general members of the armed forces and law enforcement are a conservative-leaning group. It makes sense intuitively when you consider that national defense and law enforcement are big on the conservative agenda (while liberals are usually anti-military and pro-criminal, right Mook? ;-) ). Secondly, the people who are willing to put their life on the line on a daily basis typically believe that some American ideal, of which personal liberty is front and center, is worth protecting.

As our personal freedoms are taken from us by the federal government, this is going to piss off many of the people whose job it is to protect us. Two of my very best friends are in law enforcement and I'll just say that they and their respective agency brethren aren't real pumped about where we seem to be heading.

We're not there yet, but if we get to the point where the feds are simply too oppressive to take, I think those that protect us are going to be squarely on the side of freedom and liberty.

Those in control of the military, intelligence, and law enforcement apparatus are not fond of civil liberties protection.

Libertarian cat-fight!!!

Ma, go get me my popcorn!

Very true, but give me the guys on the ground any day. I'll take the infantry and we'll get what we need. B-)

Well you'd have to be pretty stupid to stage a revolution when you're already winning. So I suppose you're right, there's a great chance it's a liberal revolution. :-D
