This would give me a chance to use the Chuck Hagel category on my blog page. A category is those tiny blue things between the headline and the body of the post. Tacked on at their end is the comment access point, which one clicks if one is to make a comment. I’m glad I didn’t exterminate that one when I cleaned up my list last summer… I remember thinking, “wonder if we’ll ever hear from him again?”

It was for him I also created the “an actual good Republican” category… That is one that rarely gets used.

I appreciated Chuck Hagel because he didn’t give a rats ass about what a Republican was supposed to do, or what a Democrat was supposed to do… He just did it.

Midwestern common sense. We can use more of that.
