As a Michigander I’m able to observe perhaps better than most the congressional career of Rep. Pete Hoekstra. As a conservative I’ve found that he is rarely on the wrong side of an issue while frequently courageous on matters little noticed but of great importance. He is even well spoken and perhaps even, telegenic. In my wildest fantasies I envision a campaign based upon hereditary Dutch frugalness. Alas, it’s only a dream. How does the man continue to go overlooked? Imagine my distress to find myself lodged within the district of Fred Upton, Rino, heir to the Whirpool fortune, and confirmed non-NR subscriber. No justice-No peace!
Note: The reader, of course, is dreaming (as he noted); Hoekstra was born in the Netherlands.
