Are the Minnesota Greens the only political party in the country who have day-long meetings that don't involve copious amounts of alcohol?

I blame it on the Lutherans.

Are you familiar with the story of Steve Kangas? If not, read on:


My claim to fame? I'm listed on the ol' guy's website.


I'm sure this link has earned me a place in several scary-looking mailla folders.

Steve was a brilliant guy, and helped me a lot with my early research into Pat Buchanan and economic nationalism. I think he was disappointed I wasn't a warrior like him -- I just couldn't argue effectively with lunatics. He was a fighter until his final days.

I miss Steve Kangas, and I miss Paul Wellstone. They were both good men, who really cared about helping other people -- and were true warriors.

The medium is the message [Jan. 14th, 2004|07:03 am]

Howard Dean is great in a lot of ways, but I don't think he will be elected President in the general election. He is allowing himself to be defined by the media as "the straight-talking angry liberal". This definition will color all subsequent media coverage of his campaign.

Clark, on the other hand, is being defined as "the General". He has already had his Sister Souljah moment with the liberals of his party -- he used to be a Republican, for chrissakes. He is defining himself for the general election, rather than letting the media define him -- and I believe this is a very deliberate campaign tactic. His campaign seems to understands the new media realities.

I also appreciate his defense of liberalism as an American value, and strong belief in community.
