Tin Shop Tartan - Randolph County Alabama's Own Snarky and Surly Scot Gets All Native

Blogging from the suburbs of the Tin Shop community, Captain Plaid brings Progressivism, and a share of Quixotic angst, to the ridges and hollows of Randolph County, Alabama. Hardly a booster yet rooted here enough to fight, Plaidsters can perhaps find like cause in trying to build local solutions to global concerns. Education, environment, economy, entertainment, engagement ... Trust the Tartan!

Alabama’s Jeff Sessions has surely been giving cover for Bu$hCo over the NSA violating FISA. Sessions also gave Stripsearch Sammy a big boost yet our esteemed junior Senator might have thought he was a little liberal. Our former AG was considered too radical by this same Senate Judicial Comittee when he was considered for the federal bench. I understand Senator Sessions will be at the Roanoke City Hall on the afternoon on Wednesday the 22nd of February from 2:00 to 3:00. I certainly will be tempted to ask Jefferson Beauregard about Stormie and now also Scarlotte. Jeffy is apparently THE MAN! You know what they say about men with big ears. And puppets! If the handover of various East Coast ports to a United Arab Emirates entity comes up then perhaps Senator Sessions can also explain the connections he has with a European military contractor named EADS and ...
