UPDATED: Acts of Valor
UPDATE 9/27, 2013: Today I rekindled my RedState membership. After the disappointment of the 2012 elections, I let my blogging and political social media go, and took a breather.

My votes were clearly not enough to make | Read More »
Alexander Hamilton as Precinct Committeeman?
