Jon Swift, R.I.P.

March 4, 2010

Reasonable conservative blogger Jon Swift has just died, as reported by his mom in a comment at his blog. It is a tremendous fucking shame that he will not be around to see his reasonable conservative ideas in action repairing the destruction wreaked on America by radical leftist Obama.

    So, does the “R” stand for “rest” or “rot”? 🙂

    OK, so not liking the smile face icon. I’d take that back and replace it with a : ), instead, if I could.

  3. His Journalism 101 piece is fucking classic, I’ll miss the guy.

    The blogosphere’s lost one of its best. And his Amazon book reviews were hilarious.

    Despite the fact that I probably disagreed roundly with that guy’s politics, reading the comments on the thread he appeared to be admired by people on both sides of the aisle.

    I would rather the GOP have been full of ‘reasonable’ conservatives than the utter batshit it’s full of now. ‘Reasonable’ conservatives are opponents we liberals are prouder to utterly demolish electorally and politically than the fringe wackos.

    Oh shit, I just figured out that that’s satire.

    I need caffeine.

  7. Katharine Says:

    I do have to say, though, the word ‘reasonable’ in front of the word ‘conservative’ is just a tad too generous for even the least rightist of them.

    I mean, even if they’re socially liberal, their knee-jerk hatred of taxes is woefully ignorant of, well, how organizations of people work.

    I was so happy to have found another intelligent blog. Then he went silent. Now, he’s gone. Sogni dolci, Al.

  9. You’re a total asshat LadyDay.
