Excited by the Personal Use of Marijuana by Responsible Adults Act of 2008, a left-libertarian emails our 5th district Congressman to see what he thought:
Naturally I wrote to our Congressman Jim Cooper and asked him to support this no-brainer of a bill. Naturally, he declined. I couldn’t grok from his response whether he hated freedom, opposed bodily autonomy, or just lacked the integrity to do the right thing. Whatever the case, it’s another appalling black mark on his record.
Which makes me sad, because I basically like the guy. He’s right just often enough to be really frustrating how often he’s wrong. But though he may be one of the least offensive of the “Bush Dogs”, he doesn’t make it easy to defend him.
