RWP was born in Manchester, in the north of England, in the late 1950s, so he is very old. He really liked the north of England, which by 1965 was hip and had three TV channels, and where he went to a coed school. His parents, for reasons best known to themselves, then yanked him away, to Belfast and then Dublin, which had one TV channel that started up at 6 pm with the Angelus (Catholic call to prayer). He also had to go to an all boys school, where he realized he really missed girls. This probably let him focus on schoolwork, though, and at age 19, after he had finished college, he set off for America, where he still resides. He has a bachelors degree in biochemistry and a Ph.D. from Harvard in biophysics, and has lived also in Mainz, Germany, Setauket NY, and Richland WA. He currently divides his time between Nebraska, Rosslyn VA, and Florida.

The backtracking from Bob Kerrey's liberal positions continues...

Bob Kerrey, speaking with his favorite shill yesterday...
The president should have waited to fix our health care system until after our economy had recovered
Bob Kerrey, in a letter he wrote (with Warren Rudman and Pete Peterson) to Harry Reid in October 2009:
We have followed the health care reform debate very carefully. We applaud you and the entire Congress for focusing on what we consider to be the most important and most difficult public policy issue.


  1. So, he was for Obamacare before he was against it?

  2. Heh heh. First he was against it -- he wanted single payer. Then he was for it. Now he thinks it wasn't a good idea, but still isn't sure if he would have voted for it.

    Merely being both for it and against it isn't complicated enough for Cosmic Bob.
