Could have been me. I certainly agree with it. I just particularly
dislike Eagle Forum. I think they're extra creepy.
Here in Texas they launched a really nasty whispering campaign against
Joe Straus who just became our new

We can't get a libertarian RNC chairman without first having a significant
