Welcome to ThePajamaPundit.com! We are so very pleased that you have found our small, virtually insignificant home on the web.
Given the toxic environment that is modern political discourse, ThePajamaPundit.com is a welcome distraction from all of the partisan bomb-throwing. With four contributors, each with a different world-view, it is a place for varying political ideologies to come together and discuss issues. Character and ad hominem attacks are strictly forbidden, which helps to open up dialogue. Readers are encouraged to add their opinions to all posts.
ThePajamaPundit.com is designed for commentary on politics, media, entertainment and whatever else may tickle the fancy of the authors. The Pajama Pundit & company welcome people from all political stripes to voice opinions freely and without fear of name-calling or mean-spirited attacks. However, intelligent arguments and discussion are expected -- and The Pajama Pundit is a stickler for proper grammar usage.
Our site is best viewed in the most recent versions of Chrome, Firefox, or Safari. Seriously.

Founder/Editor-In-Chief: The Pajama Pundit
The Pajama Pundit first stumbled upon his interest in combining political debate and the Internet(s) some
three seven years ago. For a time, a simple MySpace site and blog were his primary connection to the blogosphere which -- given the current state of MySpace.com -- now seems laughable.
Gradually, as his interest in political thought grew, so did his readership -- and also his frustration with Washington D.C.
In May of 2007, The Pajama Pundit decided that he would take his ranting and raving from the lack-of-focus MySpace blog and devote an entire site to his political prose -- complete with a fancy-schmancy custom URL and everything.
Hence, "The Pajama Pundit" and ThePajamaPundit.com was born.
A political independent, The Pajama Pundit does not toe-the-line of any political party. He has some conservative ideals as well as some progressive ones and above all feels that no one should be criticized for simply having an opinion.
A devoted husband and father of two, The Pajama Pundit
has no discernible skills for employment is employed in higher education at a large, Research I institution that he has affectionately dubbed "Behemoth University". Aside from his work and editing this most wondrous website, The Pajama Pundit is also a fancies himself something of a movie critic, a music aficionado, and a reader of adventure novels.

Contributor: The Fury Blogger (a.k.a. David Rand)
Is an opinionated person but not so much that he doesn't listen to all sides of a debate. The Fury Blogger first got into politics in 2004 shortly after leaving the United States Marines where he served in the Persian Gulf. Sometime shortly thereafter he decided it was time to create a constructive way to discuss his political ideas and created 'A Furious Mind' which eventually became The Fury Blogger.
He's always been inspired by The Pajama Pundit and his entertaining writing, and he was honored to receive the offer to participate at ThePajamaPundit.com. He's been an avid reader of this blog for several years and looks forward to many more.
The Fury Blogger is a recently-self-discovered Libertarian after years of searching for himself in this crazy world of politics. He's always found himself to be more conservative throughout the years but, in a strange twist of irony, has not once voted for a Republican president. He feels that the Republican party has lost it's way and is forming into a new party in front of our very eyes.
A stay-at-home dad of two toddlers, The Fury Blogger likes gaming, online gaming, journalism, story telling and he enjoys playing sports and going to the gym to stay in shape. During his High School years he was rated the #1 High School Catcher in the Country but was derailed from the sport of baseball due to a shoulder injury, from which he's never fully recovered.
His comments and posts may be opinionated but he welcomes reader commentary from any political spectrum, whether you agree with him or not. He's not afraid to admit when he's wrong and has been known to change his stances, prior to which he previously was so firmly opposed. Feel free to leave any thoughts about The Fury Blogger on this blog or at his personal blog at TheFuryBlogger.com, or you can e-mail him here.

Born and raised in the great state of Iowa. I love it here and plan to live out my days here. I was born in August of 1972 and I am a child of the 70’s and 80's. I vividly remember the day Ronald Reagan was shot and the day we invaded Iraq under Bush 41. I joined the United States Air Force in 1991, going to basic in San Antonio, TX and being stationed at Elendorf AFB in Anchorage, AK.
After 1 enlistment tour I returned home to Iowa. Instead of returning to my roots in Derby I took up residence in Grinnell. About 2 hours after getting off the plane, I stepped into a small Grinnell book store and began working a part time job. From there I picked up job stocking shelves at the local Hy-Vee.
In 1997 I was hired into my first factory job as a Press Operator at Engineered Plastic Components, Inc., a company that specializes in custom injection molding parts for the Automotive, Agricultural, Appliance, and Consumer industries. It didn't take long for me to work my way up from the floor to where I am now, Quality Engineer/Supervisor.
I am an avid (addict) computer gamer. My current addiction, and has been since December 2004, is World of Warcraft. My main character is Amradorn, a Tauren Druid. I am the guild leader of Foederati and I also write a WoW blog called Warcraft Field Reports.

B-Diddy is a 20-something conservative (who also happens to work in the entertainment business...go figure?). He believes the basis of the Republican party of small government, individual rights, less taxes, conservative moral principles and accountability are what makes America great. He is fair-minded, however, and knows when Republicans are wrong and will acknowledge those things. He loves political discussions as he believes debate brings about strong foundations of beliefs and is disappointed that more often than not, people don't have a strong belief system.
He encourages EVERYONE to get involved in the political process because Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, etc had it right...this is a government of the people, by the people and for the people...if we make it that way!
"What they truly don't understand is the principle so eloquently stated by Abraham Lincoln: 'You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.'" - Ronald Reagan
