Just who is this Harry Taylor guy, the man who stood up to Mr.-I-still-can't-believe-he's-President Bush at a North Carolina townhall meeting? I've googled him hi and low, and it seem like he's maybe just some regular American who told Bush exactly what he thought of him.

Here's what he said in case you missed it:

"I feel like, despite your rhetoric, that compassion and common sense have been left far behind during your administration," he told Bush. "And I would hope, from time to time, that you have the humility and the grace to be ashamed of yourself."

A president getting an earful isn't unusual. It's that this president did. See, Bush events are planted with like-minded, functionally illiterate yokels who pose questions to him like, "Mr. President, why are you so great?" And yes, staged events are not exclusive to the GOP, but the Democrats never quite got the logistics down as well as they did. Remember when Clinton was handed an aborted fetus? Yeah, them Dems aren't too good at insulating their candidates...

Anyway, if I ever see this Harry Taylor guy, the beers are on me. And here's to hoping that the lame ass Democrats will learn to understand the impact of a few, honest, straight-from-the-gut words.

Harry Taylor should run for office. In one minute, he took on Bush more than thore whole NC Democratic Party has in the last five years combined.

Is there something wrong with inviting only people who agree with you and will ask softball questions in a public forum? Cause that's how we do it at my workplace too.

"Sir, it is a burden being such a damn handsome man?"

"This isn't really a question, but I just wanted to say that's a great idea, boss."
