|WARNING: THIS SITE FEATURES ORIGINAL THINKING...Jim Croce once sang Don't tug on Superman's cape..., which seems like reasonable advice should we not wish to anger the supreme powers. We do have this duality in our culture: the Superman that is the state collective, the leftist call to a politics of meaning managed by the state, the deification of "we're from the government and we'll take care of you" - versus the Superman that celebrates individual freedom, private property, freedom of conscience, free enterprise, and limited government. We humbly take on the latter's mantle and, eschewing the feeble tug, we dare to PULL, in hope of seeing freedom's rescue from the encroaching nanny state. We invite you, dear reader, to come and pull as well... Additionally, if you assume that means that we are unflinching, unquestioning GOP zombies, that would be incorrect. We reject statism in any form and call on individuals in our country to return to the original, classical liberalism of our founders. (We're also passionate about art, photography, cooking, technology, Judeo/Christian values, and satire as unique, individual pursuits of happiness to celebrate.)|
Superman's product of the century (so far):
Yesterday afternoon during his Special Report show, Brit Hume interviewed Stefan Sharkansky, of Sound Politics, about the Washington gubernatorial, er, situation.
For all of us - who have labored long to see that the voice of freedom deserves a hearing - there was great elation to hear a clear and cogent exposure of the damage that has been done to democracy in our fair state.
It didn't hurt that Brit Hume was a felicitous questioner, but Stefan was able to make the case that we need a new election to right what went wrong here. For me, it was especially poignant that Stefan - who is not an attorney or a professional politician - was the de facto spokesman for all of us.
I know Shark himself would never say this - he is far too humble. So let me step up: Stefan Sharkansky is imbued with the spirit of our founding fathers. He cherishes freedom so much that he is willing to risk everything for it. I know that all of his colleagues are proud of him - and, though, to this point, he and I know each other only through the exchange of emails and blog comments - I am proud to call him friend.
I wish you continued Godspeed, my friend. The fight has just begun.
Ace chips in: Shark not likely an MSM guest. Number of TV interviews with Shark and MSM: 0 (correct me if I'm wrong.) This despite our local alternative tree consumer The Stranger suggesting that the MSM is in lock-step with the bloggers and Shark in particular.
UPDATE: With Sound Politics linking in, we are getting a pretty good storm in terms of video access. The media servers report that they are keeping up ok, but direct testing shows that the main data server is a little overwhelmed. I suggest flipping a coin to try the main or mirror - it doesn't work for an election, but will spread out the use on the data servers :) Thanks!

Too bad FL didn't have a "Shark" in 2000
EMCEE: Well, Mr. Gnome, you likely think of that in a way that would be an inverse to my way of thinking. IF FL had a 'Shark' in 2000 - disenfranchised soldiers would perhaps have been heard - and the FL panhandle that was suppressed by Dan Rather calling the election early might have been heard. I can only imagine the number of dead Democrats and the number of Democrats who voted twice in Dade county that he would have found.

Well said indeed Mac! And you are right on all counts. Stefan would never say that about himself, but that is what he is all about with this quest.
The irony that the local Seattle political-media establishment are wistful about the free speech rights of anarchists - yet openly condemn our words and actions - is not lost on any of us.
You are now 'up' at SP so the comment party is moving over to your place tonight!
Again, thank you. Keep up the Good Fight, Super Mac!
EMCEE: Thanks P. Scott. Bring on that party! It is a moment to celebrate the noble cause. Thank you and all the "Dirty Dozen" for everything that you do!

Wow, that's really good quality. Good work.
Isn't it interesting that Brit interviewed the local blogger, rather than the high priced lawyer, or the well-dressed spokesman?
EMCEE: Hey Ninme - It is interesting and I think it is because FOX News is really engaged with what is going on with the medium. They know where to go to get the unfiltered truth. Good to hear from you.
