[I was there.

superman-phone-boothI saw the emergence of Randy Tate and Bob Williams and Tim Eyman, each instantly recognizable as a future Conservative star. Each of them had shocking impact. I watched Linda Smith shoot, star-like across Washington’s political skies, dominating the 3rd Congressional District’s grass roots as a young State Legislator, going to Congress without filing for office, winning the primary on write-ins, before crashing into Ross Perot.

On Thursday, November 1, 2012 the Freedom Foundation [formerly the Evergreen Freedom Foundation], through its offspring, the Student Freedom Project (SFP) will host a McDermott “Debate.”

But to Save Dr. McDermott* the indignity of having to face his opponent, Ron Bemis will not be invited.

*(Dr.? Yes, Martha, he’s a psychiatrist – just look at that picture).
