Verney lays it down; Bo Diddley, like a Cadillac 8

The only thing these two items really have in common is that I noticed them both first at Hit & Run.

First, a word (or 78) from Bob Barr campaign manager Russ Verney:

The Barr campaign is not going to be a vehicle for every fringe and hate group to promote itself. We do not want and will not accept the support of haters. Anyone with love in their heart for our country and for every resident of our country regardless of race, religion, nationality or sexual orientation is welcome with open arms.

Tell the haters I said don't let the door hit you on the backside on your way out!

Good on Verney (and Barr). Not just the perfect line in itself, but a giant step toward undoing damage that other campaign did to the freedom movement.

Also at Hit & Run, Jesse Walker notes the death of Bo Diddley. Reqiescat in Pace to a man who sometimes made it work with two chords and the truth.
