And now, the 2005 Arkies...
Arkanssouri's Enemy of Liberty Award for 2005 goes to: The City of New London, Connecticut.
Our 2005 Friend of Liberty Award goes to: The Institute for Justice and The Castle Coalition.
Our True Colors Award for the year goes to this quote from Senator Santorum, revealing that Republicans are just as much anti-liberty as Democrats.
This whole idea of personal autonomy, well I don't think most conservatives hold that point of view. Some do. They have this idea that people should be left alone, be able to do whatever they want to do, government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulations low, that we shouldn't get involved in the bedroom, we shouldn't get involved in cultural issues. You know, people should do whatever they want. Well, that is not how traditional conservatives view the world and I think most conservatives understand that individuals can't go it alone.
Our Blame Everyone Else Award goes to New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin and his empty schoolbuses.
And finally, our Pterodactyls-Over-Baghdad/Dude's-Gone-Totally-Apeshit Award for the year goes to Russell Honore for this little psychotic episode and for the fact that, even when not talking on a walkie-talkie, he ends every statement with the word "Over." In fact, I may have to rename the award next year to the Apocalypse Honore Award.
I will see you fine folks in the new year. Peace out.
