John Cole of Balloon Juice risks his monthly stipend:
In the new Republican era, only fetuses , tax shelters, and ‘traditional’ marriage deserve protection. According to the actions of the current Republican party, the rest of us need to be wiretapped, monitored, have our homes inspected for whatever reason without warrants, and are incapable of making decisions on our own. My 20 year affair with the Republican party is coming to an end. I am not voting for any Republican in 2006 at any level, and I will be hard pressed to vote for this party in 2008- unless, of course, Cindy Sheehan is the Democratic candidate. These ‘conservatives’ need abut 10-15 years in the wilderness.Cole's post is not featured, linked or mentioned in any way on Pajamaline. It cannot be pleasing to Charles "Squeaky" Johnson and Roger "The Hat" Simon that one of their contracted operatives has dissed The Man. Cole is fucking with the gravy train. He'll be out soon.
