A Blue Voice in Red Ashe County

Jim Thompson in the Jefferson Post (available on-line via subscription only) has published a scorching editorial calling for the impeachment of El Presidente and further calling on Madame Virginia Foxx to introduce those articles of impeachment in the House of Representatives. That fantasy aside, here's a sample paragraph (thanks to Leisa for the text):

"Let us not trade our freedoms for the illusion of safety or, like children, be frightened of the boogie man Osama bin Laden. We are not born of men and women who sought safety first, but freedom. We shame their memories and their sacrifices when we allow our rights to diminish to 'protect' us from such a petty, wretched little thug as Osama bin Laden. Our ancestors faced enemies a thousand times more powerful, yet never yielded their freedoms."
