"Sometimes I wish I were a Democrat because Democrats seem to have more fun."

A good man and friend has died.

No use wishing he will rest in peace when I can say it with confidence. I will miss you, Lyn.

UPDATE: A mutual friend emailed to say "As for our friend Lyn... according to an old friend of Lee's who visited with Lyn late last week... Lyn was singing patriotic songs... and mixing the words up with the Lord's Prayer... he was clever and creative to the end. "

Peter Schramm at No Left Turns affectionately remembers Lyn: "If a well-tied tie is the first serious step in life, he was not a very serious fellow. Maybe that’s why I liked him."

Read the excellent tribute to Mr. Nofziger available at the Washington Post. "An offbeat figure who wore Mickey Mouse ties with the knot pulled down, Mr. Nofziger won a reputation as a shrewd, two-fisted political battler, who blended loyalty, cantankerousness and pungent phrasemaking."

I like the rest of that quote: "At other times I wish I were a Libertarian because Republicans are too much like Democrats. What I actually am is a right-wing independent who is registered Republican because there isn't any place else to go." What an clever way to put how most of us feel.

Exactly. But he was a good man. Much too moral to be a serious Libertarian. (Sorry Snark.)

Don't be sorry. I'm only a Libertarian to the extent that the Republicans keep behaving like Democrats these days and the one thing I am not, in a snowstorm of possibilities, is a Dem.

Since I am both anti-abortion and anti-free-immigration, I have probably been written off as a serious Libertarian anyway.

I tend to agree with the right-wing independent label, such as it is.

I never met Mr Nofziger, but he appeared to be having more fun at his work than most of the rest of us. Requiescat in Pace.
