    "The Case for Dick Lugar" by Peggy Noonan

    'Washington needs seasoned statesmen, especially at a time of national crisis.

    The Wall Street Journal: May 5, 2012

    Let’s wade into an argument, and on what may well be the losing side.

    The most recent polls suggest Dick Lugar, the senior U.S. senator from Indiana, first elected in 1976, is on track to lose his primary on Tuesday. I hope he doesn’t for a number of reasons but one big one: the Senate needs grown-ups. The entire American government needs grown-ups, from Capitol Hill to the White House to the executive agencies. This is no time to lose one.

    What Washington needs is sober and responsible adults. We are as a nation in a moment of real peril, facing challenges that are going to become existential—maybe already are—if we don’t do something about them. We won’t be able to ignore them—an unsound tax system, increasing and highly ideological regulation, an entitlement system whose demands will crush our children—for long. So right now, and more than ever, we need mature folk involved in our governance, people for whom not everything is new. People who know how to do things, who began studying a complicated issue 25 years ago and have kept up, who know it backward and forward. People who know the ways of the chamber backward and forward, and who know how to talk across the aisle. There is value in experience, in accomplishment and expertise. There is value in the ability to take the long view, and do your best with modesty and with an eye toward all the big jumbly categories of America, which are not limited to “rightist” and “leftist.”...'

    Notice how Skeety keeps supporting gun banners?

    Skeety has proven himself to be an anti-gun troll posing as a gun owner to spew his crap.

    Barfin, nice country. Where is that at? Any varmints?
