The lawnmower boy, Ric keller led the "gang of 17" white flag republicans to joining defeatist democrats in sending a loud and clear message to the enemies of America (and of Iraq): "Hang in there long enough, and America will put its tail between its legs and go home."

A former fetus, the “wordsmith from nantucket” was born in Phoenix, Arizona in 1968. Adopted at birth, wordsmith grew up a military brat. He achieved his B.A. in English from the University of California, Los Angeles (graduating in the top 97% of his class), where he also competed rings for the UCLA mens gymnastics team. The events of 9/11 woke him from his political slumber and malaise. Currently a personal trainer and gymnastics coach.
The wordsmith has never been to Nantucket.
