The Brawler will be voting for Lena Taylor. But he agrees with Patrick McIlheran that there's no need for remarks like this.
And given that I'm now agreeing with Patrick McIlheran, what better time than now to announce the Brawler will be taking a hiatus of indeterminate length. He expects to return -- and may drop by for an intermittent post here and there -- but there's a lot happening and some projects delayed that he wants to take on. Also, the Brawler leaves for vaca in a few days so why not a clean break (and why not enjoy a vaca without thinking about blogging).
As to the upcoming election. The Brawler won't be surprised if he gets a goose egg. He would be happy if one of his candidates win. He would be delighted if both win. But then it's on to November.
As long as the Brawler's in a magnanimous mood, he realizes he's been remiss in saying that while Owen Robinson is wrong about many things, the Brawler shares his appreciation for Wim Wenders' film Wings of Desire.
Also, the Brawler was pulling for Patrick to win that candlestick award for conservative columnists last year and was sorry he didn't get it. There's always next year.
Now go out and vote April 1.
