Ah, NH Politics

Here's the dude himselfThanks to AMR, here’s a snippet of NH political discourse from Doug Lambert that was over-the-top even for some of the most conservative conservatives here in the Granite State (and that’s saying something). I won’t bother to quote it – you can read this guy’s intelligent and insightful comments at Blue Hampshire (the link above).

Perhaps Doug’s outlandish statements aren’t so outlandish after all – at least in the context of his (nuanced and thoughtful) views expressed over the course of his lifetime.  According to GilfordGrok, here’s what he liked in high school:  Back in 1982 when Doug Lambert got to choose three things he liked for the ages in his high-school yearbook, he picked “rock and roll, Chevys, and nukes.”

Definitely sounds like someone I’d like to know!

Here’s Mo Baxley’s retort … you go Mo!

And the fallout continues – including Doug’s removing himself from the fray …

Even stepping back from his writing gig on GraniteGrok:

I will no longer write at GraniteGrok for an as yet undetermined amount of time. I plan on spending my time in prayer and reflection, looking inward to the unhealthy malice in my heart, for which I will ultimately have to face my Maker , begging for His undeserved mercy.

Prayer and reflection?  I really, really doubt that.  What a crock from GraniteGrok!

But perhaps he should be given the benefit of the doubt.  Can I/we be bigger than he is/was?

Of course – not even a stretch!

And, as an aside … do you think this piece of work might be related to Elizabeth Lambert?  There’s a similarity … can’t you see it?  Prolly similar political and religious bents, too, doncha think?

Just in case you forgot … here’s Liz in action …

    Hi Alice – and welcome back – and sorry this was one of the first things you came upon. Pretty shocking, what lurks in some hearts. Clearly, this was venom he’d been spewing for some time – just not quite so publicly (probably just with the like-minded – of whom I suspect there is no lack). Ugh! And, yes, OMG, too!

    OMG–I come back from peaceful Asheville to THIS! I’m speechless. “Unhealthy malice” doesn’t come close. More–much more–inner reflection is needed. Hateful. OMG!


So, what do you think?
