Weekend Video - Schwarz 2004
I know I keep making this promise, but I'll have some actual substantive posts sometime soon. Life just seems to get really busy sometimes.
But if you're looking for something to do for 20 minutes this Sunday afternoon, check out this video following the Schwarz campaign in the 2004 Republican primary.
Joe Schwarz was a conservative in the state legislature and in Congress, and I often disagreed with him. However, as I've said before and as I'll say again and again, he was a principled, honest man who had a mind of his own. If he stood for something, it was because he believed it.
But more than that, he's a practical man. His main goal in public office was to get something done.
If Joe Schwarz runs for Congress again, regardless of party, I probably won't support him. But in his two years in the House of Representatives, I never felt embarrassed to know he was my representative. I wish I could say the same about Tim Walberg.
Now, the video won't tell you anything you don't already know. But it's a fun watch for the political junkie, as almost a mini-version of "The War Room."
