A Straight Shot of Politics

A blog from a gentleman of the Liberal political persuasion dedicated to right reason, clear thinking, cogent argument, and the public good.

I have returned from darkness and quiet. I used to style myself as "Joe Claus", Santa Claus’ younger brother because that is what I still look like. I wrote my heart out about liberal politics until June of 2006, when all that could be said had been said. I wrote until I could write no more and I wrote what I best liked to read when I was young and hopeful: the short familiar essays in Engish and American periodicals of 50 to 100 years ago. The archetype of them were those of G.K. Chesterton, written in newspapers and gathered into numerous small books. I am ready to write them again. I am ready to write about life as seen by the impoverished, by the mentally ill, by the thirty years and more of American Buddhist converts, and by the sharp eyed people [so few now in number] with the watcher's disease, the people who watch and watch and watch. I am all of these.

The Comment Round-up Pings

I spend a lot of time posting comments on other political blogs, particularly the conservative ones. It primes my pump for writing here. So, from time to time, I'll be posting the trackback pings I leave over there when I comment. It's a good way to point to the interesting stuff I can't squeeze in here.

A good discussion is hard to find. This is one:

Spot On: The Funniest Thing I've Heard in a While.

Winds of Change: Bang a Drum: The CBS Fallout.

The Queen of All Evil: Dumbest Idea Ever.

A Small Victory: Knox Knox.Who's There?Kinkos.Kinkos Who?Uh...It's Actually Bill Burkett.

Tutakai: Proud Purples.

Majikthise: Liberalism and Moral Relativism.

Winds of Change: Rosh Hashanah: The Barber of Sayvel.

Lawyers, Guns and Money: Iraq-Nam.
