I think he likes seeing his name in the paper.
XGSBoss: This is hilarious. Keep it going 'til the TFP responds.
EverydayDrake: You might want to read everything a little more carefully. First off, I've never written a word about supporting Chuck. So let go of that assumption.
Secondly, in the article I linked to in my first post, Chuck declines comment and Weston says he'll be more "prescriptive" as the campaign progresses. Looks like that story came out six weeks ago. I don't think he's gotten any more prescriptive! Your guy is just as quiet as the incumbent.
Since nobody wants to talk about the issues - if everybody hides behind aides and/or empty filler on a website - I think it's especially important to know where the money's coming from. An hour ago you decided it was nonsense, but I'm glad you've come around.
Welcome to politics, EverydayDrake. I'm sure you're one of Weston's boys, so it makes sense that you only know what your daddy tells you too.
It is important to know who's writing the checks for one reason: The politician, if elected, typically throws back favors (tax breaks, infrastructure projects, etc) for the money that got him elected.
It's worth knowing if Zach's friends are giving to Weston. And (big shock) they are. You're wildly naive if you don't think that's important, but we've already established that.
Also, the TFP's done a story on "the issues ahead of us," as you put it in such a big-boy way: http://www.tfponline.com/news/2011/oct/16/fleischmann-wamp-sites-offer-similar-themes-gop-co/
Another big shock! Chuck and Weston agree on basically every conservative theme without offering anything of substance.
My bad, EaTn - didn't see your previous comment. I'm with you now!
EaTn - Looks like you're confusing the DNC with Bob Corker's 2006 crusade against Harold Ford, Jr. Good try though.
Thanks for your online contribution there, Tres.
All you need to read is jomo11's first comment. Hahahahahahah
I imagine Tim Boyd saying "Wicky wicky" in the photo.
328K: Are you kidding me? As I recall, this is the same reporter who broke open the Walden security story.
This a well-written, uplifting story, and the Walden story was a solid investigative piece. Both types of stories belong in the newspaper and should be told.
Get a grip and remove the tinfoil hat for once.
