Episode 10: A Kind of Republican

Jim Kolbe, a Republican member of the House of Representatives from 1985-2003, is a political outlier. He is pro-choice, he supports same-sex marriage, and he's against any kind of institutional discrimination. Even more interesting? You probably haven't heard of him.

    If you are more enthusiastic about on-page SEO, we should probably notify you that, although it’s still very essential to optimize on-page aspects, it’s incredibly unlikely to perform on its own unless your industry is particularly industry.

Look forward to your highlighting of any of these Blue Dog Democrats.

I came here to see if you folks had created a version of the the two graphs we imagined at the beginning of the episode because I wanted to post it on Facebook.
If you did make such graphs (and one where the two are superimposed over each other), so folks like myself could share it online, it would be good publicity for your young show! (as you can tell, I'm trying my hardest to sell you on creating (an accurate) version of the graph. Please! I beg you!)

Based on what I heard here - and a little bit of online research - there doesn't seem to be much that would indicate this "kind of Republican" would be any more helpful in resolving our fiscal problems than the current batch. Sure, he splits with his party on social issues, but it didn't sound like he disagreed with the hardline government is bad/no new taxes/all cuts stance that is keeping this problem from going anywhere. He might be a different kind of Republican, and I hope there are more like him in the future for the sake of women, LGBT people, and minorities, but I don't think this kind of Republican will help with our neverending fiscal "crisis." I wish you'd been a little more critical in this piece.

I'd like to echo the motion for being a little more critical. One issue I take with this piece is its exceedingly praiseful tone for Kolbe as a principled pragmatist. How principled can a gay person who voted for DOMA really be?
