The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

About Smitty

Born an Oregonian ten years and a day after Stacy, raised on the left coast, Smitty drifted East over time, and has lived in Northern Virginia for the last decade.  He’s married to a lovely German lass, and frequently tortures that noble language.

Smitty is a full-time contractor doing un-glamorous IT sorts of things.  He started off as an AN/UYK-7 technician in the Navy, and graduated from the same college as Stacy’s more famous cousin.

After a link on Instapundit led him to The Other McCain in August of 2008 (or so), he developed a frequent commenting habit.  Subsequent to CPAC ’09, he started hanging around Stacy entirely too much, leading to catastrophic reputation damage.  Unable to fight the lure of the blog, he determined that he should try to borrow as much of Stacy’s mojo as possible, because six children is a worthy goal.
