I have nothing profound to say here. Just thought readers might find it amusing that someone as eccentric as me is sitting typing on this crazy blog -- live blogging the moment, no less -- not ten feet away from a former member of Congress.
He is "former" because, apparently, his "2010 Republican primary opponents asserted that his voting record in his second House spell was more moderate than his first. He was one of 17 House Republicans who voted for a Democratic resolution opposing the Iraq War troop surge of 2007, and has spoken against climate change scepticism, offshore oil drilling and warrantless surveillance since returning to the House."
BUT he's pro gun and pro life.
