History in the Making

Tara Sue Grubb, Libertarian candidate for Congress in North Carolina’s 6th District, is the first Congressional candidate ever to have a Weblog. What’s more, her first post is pretty damned winning. Excerpt:

What about a twenty-six year old female running against an aged, eighteen year career politician? We are polar opposites in many ways. Despite the odds, whatever they be, I am as serious as a heart attack. You don’t have to be a senior politician to understand the concepts of liberty, laissez-faire and justice. You don’t have to be a mastermind to see the people of this nation have been pushed into estrangement. Finally, you don’t have to be a suit to change the way things are.

Damn straight! That’s the kind of rhetoric I like to hear.

What’s more, she’s running against Howard Coble, the crusty old co-sponsor of the odious Berman-Coble hacking bill that allows copyright holders (read: movie studios, music publishers, etc.) to hack into your PC if they even suspect you of holding unauthorized copyrighted content, free of liability. If Tara Sue Grubb can put this clueless old codger to bed, I say more power to her.

So where do I send my check??? 🙂
