What does the 69th most influential American conservative do in his spare time?

He live blogs Road improvements meetings at the County Courthouse, naturally.

Seriously, this is a trial run. I hope to be able to do this as an elected official. The newspaper and television stations can only do so much. I’m there and have to be, I might as well live blog so people who can’t be can still tune in and check out what’s going on.

I realize your mileage may vary as to the sarcasm and comments, but you’ll just have to get used to it. My thoughts are my own. You don’t like it, don’t vote for me.

  • I witnessed a car accident at the intersection of Forest Hill Road and Ridge Avenue this afternoon. I thought about road improvements, as well as your being 69th on the influential conservative list, but somebody else got “screwed” today. The fire truck and ambulances blocked my view of the David Corr sign across the street. Keep blogging and such.

  • You’re 69, but who is 96? Ron Paul! A subtle connection? Must be! It’s a conspiracy! Call Alex Jones!

  • Definitely congrats on a great achievement. The recognition and notoriety alone, are outstanding.

    However, the London Telegraph posted its Top 20 list today, and it is obvious that this British reporter does not a clue about American politics.

    Rudy the #1 conservative, give a break!!!!
