Oops, forgot the title again
Twice Right presents his case for JD Hayworth. It consists of
1. Fiscal Conservatism
2. Border Security
3. McCain-Feingold opposition
All good points and they would be worthwhile one for most candidates but here are my countervailing points
1. He is dishonest. He was intimately involved in the Jack Abramhoff scandal. There are also questions about using PAC funds to pay his wife but I am not sure on those.
2. He is a birther
3. He is as dumb as a box of rocks (which actually goes along with 2)
4. He was an earmarker.
Glenn Beck gets it wrong again. Last night on his show he claimed that Benjamin Franklin formed the first militia in the United States. The militia actually started in England where all freeman were required to prove that they had arms and were prepared to serve the King when summoned by the Sheriff. It carried over to the colonies
as protection on the frontiers and was activley used in military service during the French and Indian (7 years) war. It was at that time that Franklin organized the Pennsylvania Militia for service in that war. George Washington was serving in the Virginia Militia in 1752 and was a Lt. Col in 1754 at age 22. Whats maddening about this is he continues to present himself as a self educated expert on the founders and as sort of a latter day prophet for them and he gets basic details wrong.
