i remember landing in bosnia: 8 year-olds with guns, trying to kill us with poetry

i ran into a friend the other night--granted, a republican skeptic--who said he'd heard i was going to have a radio show, but thought it was "another one of my jokes."
i was crushed.
you devote your life to telling the truth, and THAT'S how your life's work is greeted?
the lord really DOES work in strange ways.

I am a "Milton Friedman free market-ican" not a republican. I want out of your life, and you out of mine. I believe society is best if I don't tell you what you can and can't do based upon my moral code and..vice versa.

furthermore; Kim don't be crushed...I am a non-believer that anything cycling will make it on the radio in DM-

I think you will be the equal of Steve Deace...offensive, irritating, and very entertaining. :) I really think this is Van's goal is to find a balance for Steve and he is simply testing you in a time-slot to see how you do.

I can see it now Deace-West ala Felix and Oscar. DM will never be the same.

Hmmm, devoted your whole life to telling the truth??? Is an un-truth the truth when, in your twisted little world, you believe its true?

to jeff: you had me worried, until i re-read it. you want me politically out of your life, not literally out of your life.
but radioically, you want me IN your life. very confusing.

and to anonny: i know this isn't a direct response, but i love bushisms, and this is a good reason to post a few...

"you're doing a heck of a job, brownie."

"i can press when there needs to be pressed; i can hold hands when there needs to be -- hold hands."

"if you've got somebody in harm's way, you want the president being -- making advice, not -- be given advice by the military, and not making decisions based upon the latest gallup poll or focus group."

"i don't particularly like it when people put words in my mouth, either, by the way, unless i say it."

"i heard somebody say, 'Where's (nelson) mandela?' well, mandela's dead. because saddam killed all the mandelas."

"we're kicking ass."

"more than two decades later, it is hard to imagine the revolutionary war coming out any other way."

"information is moving -- you know, nightly news is one way, of course, but it's also moving through the blogosphere and through the internets."

[all us smart decider guys believe in the power of the internets.]

I initially read blogically as biologically. Thought we were going to have to run The Reverend to the hospital for a second. :)
