Left Hook

I think I am a political masochist. If that's even a thing. I am a very conservative republican and yet, I constantly surround myself with people and programs that are very liberal. First off, we have my Mom. Now, this one is less of a choice on my part than it is requirement of our law. However, whenever we have a political discussion I am the one to instigate it. Next up, West Wing. One of my favorite television shows of all time. For those of you who don't know, it is a show about fictional White House staffers. The president and nearly all of the staffers are liberal democrats. You would therefor think, that a republican like myself would not enjoy it but, I do. And last, but not least, we have John Stewart and Dr. Stephen T. Colbert, DFA. Two of the funniest guys on the planet. Also, two very liberal men whose comedy is usually at the expense of the republican party either as a whole or individuals within it.

Perhaps I'm not a masochist, perhaps I simply enjoy being contrary. Maybe, the reason I do all of this is so that I can satisfy the urge to crate argument and debate. I might be doing all of this simply to fight with others and to come up with arguments against myself..

Short: yes
Off Topic: no
As Good As Tomorrows Will Be: of course not



  1. I vote for the "contrary" one.
    Also, great title :D

  2. First, I would like to point out that Stewart and Colbert mock politicians of every party. It is easier, however, to mock Republicans because they continue to elect people like W. and Palin.

    Second, I think your choices of programming are based on quality rather than ideology.

    Third, " better a bleeding heart than no heart at all." Best bumper sticker ever, and my personal motto.
