Oh to have council members like this

Erick Erickson is a friend of mine. We met at the Sam Adams Alliance Samsphere conference and hit it off - especially with our backgrounds in elective service.

His efforts to focus on conservative principles while serving on the Macon City Council are well-known to many, but not all. His creative way of exposing ridiculousness in leftist issues makes many of us smile.

As an example, there is this story of a recent resolution to make President Barack Obama an honorary member of the Macon city council. Erick approached it with facts and a bit of humor - and was successful in getting the measure tabled.

I only wish we had such aplomb in Toledo.
