Common sense, intelligence, and balance. RIA's Chief Justice.

I made my living in politics for many years, and I have little faith in the correctness of the right or the left side of the spectrum.

I have learned that neither side of the aisle has a monopoly on truth, honor or honesty, and that both sides are equally motivated by expediency and self interest. And the best politician of both sides are motivated by a sense of doing the best they can, by the terms of their philosophy.

It is a fool who demonizes their political opponent, for it may well prove to be true that the very position they take, is one embraced out of necessity within a few short years. Or less.

A judicious curmudgeon.  Who would have thought such a thing was possible.  I'd pour him a drink from the bottle that is in the top cupboard any day.

I would posit that he leans a little to port, but can claim the moderate mantle for all that. I am glad he is back with his wit, knowledge, and satire.

From one centerist to another, I appreciate his ability to look at the flipside of an issue before taking a thoughtful, educated stance...but never one that is unnecessarily watered down. His clear dedication to ria is an inspiration to newer folks such as myself. Also, I respect his passion for baseball - the sport and it's history - he is a fan in the best sense of the word.

Irishgit was one of the reviwers that I took a liking to early on. I can't tell yu how many times I have split my sides laughing over some of his comments, or how many times I got frustrated because he had already made exactly the same comment I would have made (especially on some of the humorous items). He has an amazing depth and breadth of knowledge, and is intersting to correspond with. He sure is a lot smarter than his shanty Mick self-description would lead you to believe. RIA would not be the same without his wit or his incisive comments on politics.

i like this guy. any problems i had with Irish stemmed from his dislike of Kerouac, and my irationality where writers are concerned. other than a few writers, a generall agree with Irish. As for him being a moderate, or whatever a moderate is. I doubt that. i think Irish has his view and beliefs, they just don't need to be constantly proven and tested, especially on a web site where there's books and authors that deserve serious debate. Besides everyone knows Bush isn't half the man James Joyce was.

Typically fun to read regardless of what the topic is. He's a little too pro-Canada for my tastes (lol) but nonetheless still a great reviewer!
