Pat's long been one of my favorite posters and best DC friends, he's always been a certain percentage of conserva-troll and genuine conservative advocate. That percentage has always fluctuated depending on the times.
During the healthcare debate, for instance, he was about 95% genuine, 5% troll.
By the final months of the election, and honestly ever since, he's probably reversed those percentages. I was wondering if/when he'd flip back, but it's a sad day for those of us around here if he's honestly considering leaving.
That said, if he's asking for Direckshun-assisted suicide (see what I did there), well... I gotta be a buddy.
