    Choose the new leading liberal!

    Okay, since Llad left in a fit of pique, we need to find us a new libbie. The older the better, but I don't think we'll find an exact replacement for our dearly departed. There's no way a poser like myself or PLF could imitate his wondrous tin-hattery.

    Instead, we need someone witty, not turgid. Someone whose lips are only lightly flecked with foam, and provides entertainment for all rather than just the conservatives.

    Nominations? It may not even come to an OTF poll.

    Dondrei is a little too stable for my tastes.

    Freezerburn, anyone?

    alexzed has potential, if he would be a little less fanatical, and more cool-headed.

    FreezerBurn would be a good candidate, provided he can learn to read his links more carefully.

    Other than those two, no idea.

    Might I ask what happened to the old coot? I was on a few weeks' hiatus for life reasons and missed his departure.

    He couldn't take a joke

    JMan just linked the OP, not llad's blatant overreaction.

    Ahh. He linked to the original post, but for some reason not the thread. I had to click back and find the thread to find the departure.

    Yeesh. Guess it was one poke too many for him.

    Dondrei's too stable for this position?!? That sures narrows the field down.

    If only Duped were still around...

    Depending on how recently Freet's run an IP check, he might be.

    I request that the replacement at least be as adept at posting links and quoting articles.

    ha! I didn't know he left. Too funny.

    I bet he will be back though. I also didn't know he used two accounts. Is this true or just a rumor?

    Whoever replaces him will need to be in love with The Washington Post.

    I would suggest that the poor soul who gets this title should have to undergo a series of tests to see if they are able to withstand the onslaught. I guess that person's resume would look like this:

    -Extra thick armour on the right side
    -Ability to sit through Bill Riley for 18 hrs without gnawing own ears off
    -Ability to say 'Bush has done a credible job' without breaking into fits of laughter
    -Must have read at least 4 books/dissertations by Chomsky
    -Have own bong

    Am I missing anything?

    1. Talent.
    2. The ability to see the difference between right vs. wrong and left vs. right.
    3. Ability to demogauge with class and a little style and grace. Like getting into a car.
    4. The ability to say with creidbility "I was there, you weren't"
    5. The willingness to argue for years on end that their side is right, here's why, here's how your side is failing, here's what you need to do to rectify the situation, etc.
    6. A level of intelligence (not necessarily education) suffecient for the task at hand.

    I'm not a liberal. I'm an independent.

    Check!
    I watch Bill O"Reilly everynight anyway. I find him just as funny as Bill Maher and just as rediculous.
    Check!
    I don't read books, so I can't pass this one.
    Check!

    DPH, you'd be an interesting candidate. You go a little off the deep end sometimes, even moreso than llad though. I can remember reeling you in a few times.

    Still not a bad candidate.

    It's too bad llad ain't here to see how much actual respect evem Smeg has for him.
