BARBARian Alert

Okay, that's not exactly what it sounds like. I just discovered an interesting pol/soc site from west coast NOCAL that tipped me off to a new candidate seeking my vote here in Ohio!

Mags be this lady's nom de blog and here's the intro which left me quite abashed at my ignorance of one Paul Hacket.
Marine Reservist Maj. Paul Hackett, according to this article in Salon, just might have the chutzpah to fire up the Democratic party. The first Iraq veteran to enter the political arena, he's already called Dubya a "chicken hawk" and a "son of a bitch" with regard to the war.
The Salon article she references is, luckily for me, quoted fairly well in her post.

For now, I'll just say this guy bears more scrutiny, so I'll get back to this after some scrutinizin'. AS I commented on Mag's site,
... it does seem that I recall he would be making his run against OH's junior Senator, Mike DeWine. That's my preference anyhow and as well because Voinovich has at least shown a bit higher quality of human reasoning ability than even our average Dem lately. At least he beats his elephantine cohorts hands-down in that arena.
So thank you Mags. It was your blog's title, You Forgot Poland, that drew me in as I am genetically - though not so much culturally - a pollack from Lorain Ohio. (Bains nee Nabakowski)


  1. Hey! No problem. I am very supportive of folks who seem to have what it takes to reinvigorate the Party, and if I have to look beyond my own state, then so be it. Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for the shout out. :)
