National Journal Blogometer calls Iowa Ennui...a lefty!

I have no control over how readers interpret these posts. To wit: the National Journal Blogometer linked to my “Is Mitt a Fox?” post and in doing so branded me a LEFTY – that should push a few spa’ghettos out of Drew’s nose.

MA Gov. Mitt Romney (R) continues to receive press -- both good and bad -- on his new health-care plan. Right-leaning American Geek: "It sounds intriguing, to say the least." Lefty Things Going Round & Round, on Romney's veto of certain parts of the legislation: "I get that it's tough to be a conservative in charge in Massachusetts; it's not a conservative state. But this maneuvering looks a little practiced and perhaps consultant advised with Iowa in mind." News Hounds takes issue with Romney's claim that he wrote the bill. A DailyKos diarist examines what Romney said on yesterday's "Hardball" regarding marriage. Righty Once More Into The Breach, a "Blogger for Allen": "Socialism is an odd path to take to the Republican nomination." Romney finished tied for second in the SC College GOPers' straw poll.
Anyone who reads this blog knows that I’m not a lefty, a fiscal conservative contrarian with a mean streak, okay. But on the left? It’s obvious that the blog skimmers at National Journal don’t have a clue about Iowa’s Chuck Larson and skipped right over the Hoover Digest link.

My backpedal on the Mitt post: I’ll say upfront that I believe we already have universal health care, we’re just fighting about what’s quality and who pays.

Mitt’s line item veto backpedal is a convenient node to the big business money folks that look at health care costs as a horrific drag on their bottom lines. The irony about Mitt’s health care plan tap dance is that you can see the same sort of tap dancing from the D.C. conservative elites in their pro-immigration columns. Both of these points of view pander to big business interests that often think nothing of disregarding local policy needs or political dynamics. It’s a tricky rift in the Republican Party that adds another piece of philo dough on the 06-election year baklava (had to work in one obscure food reference).

Welcome to the fiscal conservative left. :) I've been saving you a seat for months.
 
You're not a lefty? What next? Krusty's not a clown?
 
KL - I wish I could believe you..however, I know better. I've met one too many lefties with their heads obliviously installed in the government funds trough.

Faux-bacon - Unfair, I just think I'm a grouch about both the liberal AND conservative political worlds. I'll just always say what I think as I don't have a treacherous bunch of hangeroners to keep happy. Of course, that implies I don't have a job with any real substance, but I've resigned myself to the Iowa culture that likes to box up their people for convenient use...and, well, I am an inconvenient gal.
