Jimmy Blue Listens to The PES?

After reading his latest column published in the Daily Evergreen I have to ask if Jimmy Blue is a listener of The PES.

Jimmy Blue writes:
It is easy to complain about parking tickets. Almost every day I over hear a fellow student complaining about the "parking Nazis" who are surely out to cause them personal harm. People dispute the reasons for their tickets, and often seem incapable of taking responsibility for their failure to follow explicit parking rules.
So Jimmy writes that people illegally park and get a parking ticket, but rather than taking responsibility for their own actions they blame someone else. That has been the theme of this season of The PES. "Look in the mirror" - you need to take responsibility for your own actions. You need to look at yourself before you start to blame other people.

I have to say that Jimmy is on the mark with this column. I like to give credit where credit is due.

Yes, this semester Jimmy has come out against all sorts of nannyism, like the trans fat and proposed iPod bans, and in favor of personal responsibility.

That's why it is all the more curious that he bought into PARD's hogswallop about Wal-Mart, until you consider his position as the Young Democrats' Director of Communications.

Perhaps Jimmy is feeling the first of the tremors that will knock down the leftist house of cards every time?
