It Looks Like We're The Chocolate-Covered Nut!

O.K., this is weird:

Along with a few of the others out there, our original Charlie Sheen post got quoted by an elegant blog called Right, Wing-Nut!

Here's what was written around our quote:
As a conservative, I should be horrified by Charlie Sheen. But as I said earlier, as a libertarian, I frankly don't give a f*ck about his wild behavior; he's nobody's role model save for his kids, and even that status is dubious.

But watching the flames fire out from his cocaine-fueled engine, I have to wonder: Are we so entranced by this spectacle because it is a "train wreck" in action, or because deep in our collective national subconscious, we respect a man who would rather burn out than fade away, a man who will live and die only on his terms, not "ours"?

...Some of us, sheep, willing to give up of freedoms for a little more security.

On the other hand, some of us have become...Tea Partiers. Another group of rebels, scorned by the media and loathed in polite society, who yet continue to push forward and succeed in their mission of taking our freedoms back. "Live Free or Die", and "Don't Tread on Me"....sentiments that Charlie Sheen espouses in his own sphere seemingly every five minutes.

And the media - despite their tongue-clucking at our imaginary excesses - cannot stop talking about us, even if only to vilify us. And our support within the nation, while not overwhelming, is strong - stronger than those who would dispose of us.

And maybe that is why I can't vilify Charlie. He may be dead by Christmas, but he went down fighting to be free, even if only to wallow in his own crapulence. We, too, are fighting every day - to avoid being part of a socialized nation ruled by scabby bureaucrats who will monitor our every move, but instead to be free men and women choosing to live and die as we choose.

Good luck, Chuck. You need it, as do we...
Ain't that the truth! So what's new? Well, after looking over some of Right, Wing-Nut!, we've found we agree with pretty much every political position it's blogger, The Jerseynut, has put out there! Which, even after seeing ourselves quoted positively, gave us a bit of culture shock - it's just never happened before.

So anyway, if anyone wants to see what our politics look like - without the artistic pretensions, crazy graphics, and swearing - we suggest you take a peek at The Jerseynut's site:

Right, Wing-Nut! was a real eye-opener, even to us.

UPDATE: We went back and changed the graphics on this post, because the Gene Wilder/Richard Pryor schtick seemed more appropriate.
