Have you ever listened to his 2009 farewell speech? It’s not short — he was saying good-bye after 36 years to assume the Vice Presidency! — but it’s just beautiful, and what politics should be.
Joe Walsh is a less decorous former conservative Republican Illinois congressman . . . author of F*ck Silence: Calling Trump Out for the Cultish, Moronic, Authoritarian Con Man He Is.
“Challenging Trump for the GOP nomination taught me my party is a cult,” he wrote last month. “Real conservatives think for themselves. Trump Republicans have been brainwashed.”
(Carl? Tom? Peter? Give it a read.)
Finally, if you’re looking for a non-biased source of news, my friend Nathan (who helped found it) reports that “News and News just received kudos from MBFC, an independent media watchdog. With more than 2,900 news sources in its database, MBFC rates outlets based on bias in wording and headlines, story choice, the extent to which reporting is factual, and evident political leanings. Universities and libraries rely on MBFC to vet news sources for recommendation. Please help get the word out.”
