Wake up, Rove! Payment is long overdue!
I am still the same small-l libertarian I was when I started writing this blog. I think it's fair to say that there have been many major issues, and many more "latest outrages" over the years. Yet I haven't changed my mind about a single major issue I can think of.
To some of the louder voices these days, I guess that means I am now a RINO. Or, better yet, a member of the "ruling class." I might as well enjoy my status, and I should probably be grateful because of all the wonderful perks that go with the privilege. In a post Glenn said I had to read "whatever else you do," (so whatever else could I do but read it?) Doctor Zero mentioned that a barony might be in the offing, which intrigued me:
People are drumming each other out of the conservative movement, pointing at formerly solid allies and doing the Invasion of the Body Snatchers howl. Promotion to the "ruling class" has become so easy that I'm thinking of endorsing Castle just so I can join the aristocracy. I'll settle for a barony. I'm a cheap date.I'm even cheaper than that. I wouldn't have thought to ask for anything. (And I know I'll never qualify for a peerage.)
But still.... Right is right, and I took a lot of flak over the years writing countless posts as the Karl Rove operative I was. The man owes me money, and despite my many repeated requests, in all of these years he has never a paid me a cent.
So, while I am not demanding a barony, I would at least like my check now.
(Remember, I am not getting personal here. This is strictly business.)
