    I've said all along that Harry Reid would impress doubters as minority leader and I was ready to campaign and vote for Dean for president. What the two have in common is straight talk and the willingness to call BS when they see it.

    I left Kansas because the hypocrisy was getting too much to bear. I chose the libertarian west because my sense of politics fit best with fiscal conservatism and the right to total privacy for every citizen. Nevada was obviously the first choice for jobs, climate and future potential.

    I am and will be for the forseeable future a registered Republican but you can have Nevada, Idaho, Arizona, New Mexico, Montana and Colorado with regularity if you'll put real people out there as representatives of the voters. I voted for Kerry simply because I refuse to vote for criminals, draft-dodgers and puppets to lead me. But Kerry was not a real person. Not because of where he was from, not because of his education, but because he allowed himself to be packaged, prepped and processed until he was more vanilla than vanilla. If that is the fault of the Democratic leadership, then Howard Dean is more a savior than even I thought. But in the end, the candidate allows the changes to be made and must bear the responsibility and consequences.

    Give me a Reid with his nasal voice which speaks the truth. Give me a Dean with a war whoop who speaks the truth. Bring a Napolitano or Sebelius into the mix too. You want to shake up the world we live in, try some home-spun honesty. And call BS when you see it.
