Zephyr Teachout was the radical fast train, spewing fractivist smoke at every bend, but she learned there are still a lot of country boys and girls around.
If you’re into railroads, the word “Zephyr” immediately brings to mind the famous Amtrak passenger train of the same name. It runs through Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah and Nevada to reach California. If you’re into politics, you’re thoughts run to Zephyr Teachout, the radical fast train that was going to run right over Governor Corruptocrat. When that didn’t happen, she was the designated belle of the Hudson Valley destined to replace retiring Congressman Chris Gibson by beating John Faso. Except that didn’t happen either. The rest of us can thank the fact there are still a whole lot of country boys and girls around.
