Punditocracy is unAmerican…whether conservative or liberal. Let’s return this country’s leadership to those willing to intelligently, respectfully disagree—and work—with one another.

Is it partisan-bashing if they’re just quoting themselves?

Let’s return the Republican party from the desperate, greedy clutches of fear-mongers to true conservatives who know that we’re all in this together—and put country ahead of party

Those funny, cute…

  1. Waylon, after some consideration, I strongly advocate that you start the Dharma Tea Party.

    I will donate $10 and I will nominate you for party chairman. We can inaugurate the effort at a place up near Indian Peaks that I know has significance in Buddhist history.

    The Party Platform will consist of the Eightfold Path and the Four Noble Truths. We will be the party of causes and conditions, right speech and right action. The Dharma will guide our policy. And our awareness of the interdependence of all men will inform our ethics.

    In our inaugural meeting we will decide whether the effort shall play out in the world of real politics, or whether we should be a shadow government wielding influence through skillful means and control of karmic conditions. (In the latter case we will join a significant movement already formed.)

    Let us forget the cheap shot politics of attachment and truly make a difference for our fellow man.

  2. I'm a little concerned no one is signing up to be Waylon's political consultant to help him develop the Dharma platform.

  3. Oh, my. Obama says the darndest things hosted by Sarah Palin.
