Oh Jack, Jack, Jack...

Jack is deluded in believing that politicking in America just requires some genius strategy or game plan, like it's chess. The problem is, were it like chess, your opponent has six queens to your 15 pawns and you can move only once every four turns. The game itself is rigged. Hunter's goal isn't true liberty, it's to replace the severe Christian right neo-con apparatus with his Walter Block version of conservatism, both of which clamor to use the force of government to make the governed bend to their will. Essentially, Hunter doesn't mind that the game is rigged, he just wants to be the side with 6 queens. I postulate that Jack has fantasized that he'd be the Ralph Reed of the new millennium, Newsweek cover and all; that he'd be the new GOP power broker-the 'tea party' liaison with the 'new'[old] GOP. I'm sure he thinks he's just being pragmatic, but it's the pompous who get duped the easiest. There IS a moral to "the Emperor's New Clothes" after all, and over the last month Jack Hunter has been prancing around oblivious that he has bared all to the liberty movement. A titanic fail Jack- but frankly I'm sure you could care less.
