Perhaps you are jealous of Red. Lord knows I would be! "How did she land the EG? What has she got that I haven't got?"
The answer is Billy Bragg tickets!
And though I may be the voice of the Radical Middle, she is squarely on the left. Now I know that liberal views generally aren't accepted in the blogosphere, but please hear me out. Red pointed out to me that the song NPWA is extremely apropos of the current U.S. economic situation. Take a few minutes to listen to this clip. Mr. Bragg makes some relevant points.
My being a centrist doesn't make me politically apathetic, it means letting logic dictate over passion on an issue by issue basis. And if you strip away the bleeding-heart hippie bullshit, there are some valid and cogent points here. Government will never be balanced in a manner that would appeal to me and the intentions of TJ, but the pendulum has swung too far to the right. Next election year I promise I will seek out a right wing folk singer to go see. (Any recommendations would be appreciated.)
