What I will not write about today

Sometimes I get so frustrated and/or disheartened and/or annoyed by some of the news stories of the day that I can’t bring myself to write about them. Here are a few recent reports that made my blood pressure hit the roof. I am avoiding delving into them at length out of concern for my physical and mental health.

Rand Paul "Southern Avenger" aide resigns: "There's significant difference between being politically incorrect & racist."

Racism is being discussed a lot these days, and since the Zimmerman verdict and President Obama's speech in the White House press briefing room, it's been rearing it's very ugly head more and more overtly and brazenly.

One person who has gotten plenty of media attention is Senator Rand Paul aide Jack Hunter, aka the "Southern Avenger." Why? Because he does minor little things like write articles praising John Wilkes Booth, wears a mask printed with the Confederate flag, and is a proud neo-Confederate, pro-secessionist... who was Rand Paul's media director.

'Nuff said:

(CNN) - An aide to Sen. Rand Paul who had taken heat recently for his past as a pro-Southern secessionist has resigned his position as the senator's new media director. [...]

Hunter, who once used the persona "Southern Avenger" while hosting a radio show, will resume his career as a political pundit, according to the Daily Caller.

"I've long been a conservative, and years ago, a much more politically incorrect (and campy) one," Hunter said in an email to the conservative news outlet. "But there's a significant difference between being politically incorrect and racist. I've also become far more libertarian over the years, a philosophy that encourages a more tolerant worldview, through the lens of which I now look back on some of my older comments with embarrassment."

Yet Rand Paul stood by this lowlife. There's a difference between being politically incorrect and unfit to hold public office.

Poll-itics: Hillary could win Texas in 2016, but support for secession has increased

PPP has some interesting little tidbits in their new poll. One that stood out was that more Democrats than Republicans support an election-rigging scheme to allocate electoral voters by Congressional District instead of giving them to the statewide winner, by a margin of 28% to 25%.

but wait there's more

Public Policy Polling:

PPP's newest Texas poll finds that, at least for now, Hillary Clinton could win the state in 2016... she would have a decent chance of winning Kentucky if she makes another White House bid. [...]

Support for secession in the state has increased since President Obama's reelection. 20% of voters say they'd like to leave the country to 67% who support staying in the union. That's up from 14% who wanted to secede when we polled on the issue in September of 2011. 35% of Republicans support exiting.

So Texas voters could very well support Hillary Clinton, a Democrat, in 2016 while simultaneously warming to the idea of seceding from the rest of us.

Solution: Allow that 20% of anti-Obama Texans to strand themselves on an island somewhere, while the sane ones vote Hillary into office. See? Bipartisan solutions aren't that hard to find.
