REPUBLICANS….I’m honored by the faith Charles Murtaugh shows in me here, and I’ll try to be worthy of it. But I’d really like to know: just what was it that inspired this poetic ode to the Republican party?

I mean, I’ve certainly got reasons of my own for feeling the same way, but I’m not quite sure how the past couple of weeks have been much different from the past couple of years. So whaddaya say, Charlie, how about sharing with us?
