Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

The People's House? Part II

Apparently, Capitol Police are at least bi-partisan in their fear of t-shirt slogans, though it's interesting to note that (unlike Cindy Sheehan) they didn't arrest Beverly Young, wife of Republican Congressman Bill Young of Florida, for wearing one that said "Support the troops defending our freedom"; they just accused her of "protesting" and escorted her out of the chamber. She called the officer an "idiot," which just goes to show that if a conservative is a liberal who's been mugged, then a liberal is a conservative who's been arrested (or, uh, escorted from the chamber).
