Going Dutch
by

My blogging about Bob Barr got linked by a Dutch site. My Dutch is a little rusty, and the Babelfish translation is gibberish, but I think they’re saying:

Journalist Robert Stacy McCain, no kin of John McCain and certainly no supporter, has his own libertarian blog. McCain explains why (some) libertarians have had it with the Republican Party and why they welcome Barr’s candidacy.

OK, they’re Dutch, so I’ll cut them some slack on the inaccuracies. I have libertarian tendencies on many issues — I’m generally pro-market and anti-regulation — but I’m conservative on cultural issues.

Also, contrary to the Dutch blog, I am a distant cousin of John McCain, a kinship that can be traced back to two brothers, Hugh and Alexander McCain, who migrated westward from South Carolina circa 1800. One branch of the family ended up as plantation owners in the Mississippi Delta, the other branch ended up as East Alabama dirt farmers. I’m a proud descendant of the Alabama dirt-farming McCains.
