Back Again, Back Again.......

After a little hiatus due to network issues at work and just being plain busy in real life I have returned.

So much to talk about.

My Uncle, Churlish Figure, passed on to me that William Gibson has a blog.
I think William's most recent post sums it up nicely for me:

"In some more cheerful historical continuum, I could be quite happy with a decent centrist Republican as president. Indeed, from what I take to be the perspective of the extreme left, the problem with Kerry would be that he's merely that: a decent centrist Republican. There are, in fact, decent centrist Republicans who quite rightly regard themselves as true conservatives, and it was not my intention yesterday to tell people like that to buzz off. If you're a decent centrist Republican, or a true conservative, today, I feel for you; your party has been carjacked by some sort of radical movement, and driven right around the spectrum -- people who've bathed their brains all too thoroughly in the White Light of the far, bad side.

In very much the sense that Bush is not actually a Christian, likewise is he nothing remotely conservative. Believing Bush is conservative in any traditional sense is like believing that a Formula One racer with the Perrier logo on its side is full of mineral water.

The RNC today is a party in the hands of dangerous political radicals."

There are lots of good resources/outlets for those of a centrist bend, such as:

Centrist Coalition and their weblogThe Moderate RepublicanRunning Scared (a reluctant republican)

Also WatchBlog covers the whole spectrum from Dems to Repubs.
