While I’ve made it clear that I stand with the Republican party on some foreign policy issues, I remain a supporter of the Democratic party — and I’ve made that clear. For the first time, I’m going to come out in favor of a Republican.
I know the basic argument against me — “how can you claim to be a Democrat if you won’t support [Democrats] Sheeler or Whitehouse?” — I support the best candidate, in all circumstances. Period. That’s why I’m supporting Joe Lieberman in Connecticut.
In interest of keeping the Blue State Observer “family-friendly,” Steve Laffey is a class-A jerk — look, to be honest, with all respect to the Empire State, Laffey acts more like an angry New Yorker than someone from the great New England region.
Lincoln Chafee seems to be on of the last great Republicans. You know, if the Republicans went more on where the party’s roots are, than the neocon agenda, I’d put on the biggest elephant tie and straw hat in New England. Whatever happened to less government? The Republican party gives a bigger damn what Chuck and Tom do in their bedroom than the financial standing of the American people. During the recent debate between Chafee and Laffey, Chafee made it clear that he is a REPUBLICAN — the kind who is against tax cuts if it’s bad for the economy, and doesn’t really give a damn what Chuck and Tom are doing.
Call me a Chafee-Republican if you want — a breed that hasn’t been seen since the Reagan revolution.
