Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

Rachel Maddow, Arch-Conservative Drinker

In a recent interview, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow was asked to reveal the most conservative thing about herself.  Her answer:

That's a bottle of Blanton's.  You can't do better.
"Probably my drinking habits.  I am a rigorous curmudgeon when it comes to alcohol.  All the mixed drinks and cocktails that anybody needs were pretty much settled a generation before I was born.  There's no reason to have, like, cordials made from new flowers.  There's no reason to put bacon in your fucking bourbon."

Oh Rachel, I've loved you for many reasons.  Now I have another.
