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."

Sam Johnson: Two-Faced Hypocrite

My Right Honorable Colleague Right of Texas approvingly notes this impassioned speech by Cong. Sam Johnson warning that "defunding" the Surge is a "slow bleed" that would result in "taking away the lifeline" of the troops "when they are in the middle of a war zone" (ignore, for the moment, the fact that the Murtha Plan so despised by Right and Johnson would do absolutely nothing of the kind).

Now, let's set the Wayback to 1995 and hear what Cong. Johnson had to say then...

P.S. Read the comments, too.

Just an FYI thing (and I made the same mistake here a while back), RofT has another writer on there, Lone Star Conservative, who's much more of a nutter than he is. RofT is young and impressionable, and sometimes pretty reasonable, and may even come around some day. Lone Star Conservative seems to be a whack job from the git-go.

Your point is well-taken. I was refering to "Right of Texas" as the name of the blog and not as an individual. Truth be told, I hadn't really noticed there were two different people, tho' I did notice a very distinct difference in style, which I wrongly attributed to some kind of split-personality disorder. I agree with your assessment of RoT (the person) as a thoughtful conservative. We can only hope that someday he will come to Jesus.
