On Saturday, I had the opportunity, at the 2013 Leadership Program of the Rockies Annual Retreat, to hear from some fantastic speakers, including Mayor Mia Love, Judge Janice Rogers Brown, and Bill Whittle.
For those of you who don’t know Whittle, you’re missing something special, with his YouTube videos (including the Afterburner series for Pajamas Media) offering great entertainment and great insight into today’s politics.
Whittle’s new project is called Mr. Virtual President. He will be making videos which will look like he’s the President of the United States, saying what he would say if he were President of the United States.
His first effort is a segment of a virtual State of the Union speech in which he talks to Congress about guns and gun control legislation.
My first and enduring reaction was “Why isn’t one well-known Republican member of Congress half as effective a communicator as Whittle?” My second reaction is “this guy should run for office” — but in fact he shouldn’t. He should keep on doing what he’s doing, where he can have a much greater impact than one lonely voice fighting for reason and liberty among a marauding band of idiots and statists.
Watch this and share:
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
