Real Values has a bio up of Walter Jones by way of explaining why progressives shouldn't be Jones fans. (The BlueNC discussion he links to begins here.) It's a good post, containing some things I didn't know and some things I'd forgotten. You can color me convinced. I think that what's going on here is that in an age of fierce Republican adherence to the party line, Walter Jones gives us a reason to suspect that not all Republicans are robots. That could be a good thing or a bad thing.
Since I didn't make it to New York this weekend, I'm spending some of the time under the hood at BlueNC. Expect changes soon!
