ran 2.8 miles
Today ends week forty-nine of running against Obama. I ran 22.3 miles this week, averaging 3.19 miles per day.

One brief and concise point today. All of these fork-tongued liberal pundits we see on television calling the Tea Party “terrorists” need to check their premise. First, if Republicans or conservative media figures had referred to any liberal faction to such an excessive extent as a group of terrorists who threw metaphorical bombs at the American economy, or anything else, it would have been unacceptable. But in this instance it is somehow appropriate? Way to tone down the rhetoric amid real and tragic global terrorism that occurs daily. Second, the Tea Party comprises far less than 20% of the vote at this time. If you ask me what the paradigm of terrorism is in the twenty-first century I would say it is fundamental Islamic jihadists. But they are a splinter faction of Muslims that carry out these attacks. And when they do they either die during the attack or run as far away as they can because what they did was an atrocity and they know it. To call the tea Party terrorists is absurd. If the Tea Party made an attack during the debt ceiling talks, they certainly aren’t ducking and running now. They stand firmly in their position because it is self-evident to them that our president and Congress are not doing what we hired them to do. Lastly, if the Tea Party continues to grow in approval and shellacs Obama and his counterparts again in 2012, will that be an act of terrorism, too. At what point do hard-working, proud Americans stop being called terrorists and start being called a majority that will go down in history books as the generation of voters that put an end to America’s federal wasteland?

1,060.8 miles to go.
