Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

A Phone Call

I recently received a robo-call from the Working Families Party. It seems they were upset that my Congressman, Peter King (R, NY), had supported Eric Cantor for some post. They tried inventing a scandal having to do with Eric Cantor's wife, who was a director of one of the banks getting a trivial portion of the bailout money.

In other words, a dubious organization is targeting a remaining Republican Congressman from the northeast (if successful it will be followed by attacks on Republicans for being regionally restricted) and a Jewish conservative Republican who isn't a RINO (if successful it will be followed by attacks on conservative Republicans for being religious bigots).

The really important part of this is that Eric Cantor has recently been opposing the plan of buying up parts of banks. In other words, he is not affected by his wife's financial interests.

Another point is that we reactionaries are now braced for this nonsense.
