Sarah Hunt

There’s gonzo, and then there’s Sarah Hunt. Hunt is the humorist/policy activist who came up with the moniker “Green Nude Eel” in response to the preposterous extravagances of the utopian environmental left and in particular a certain freshperson congresscritter whose name shall not be uttered here. But Hunt, the founder of the Joseph Rainey Center, a boutique Washington think tank, is an environmentalist herself, but one so idiosyncratic that it might be better to think of her as idiosocratic instead. Certainly we have fun with our frequent re-enactments of The Symposium.

Certainly we have a great time kicking around everything from energy and environment to—what else?—the coronavirus crisis (don’t miss her article in The Federalist about how her neurosurgeon sister is making masks at home between hospital rounds), to the endless comedy of Washington DC, including the answer to the great question, what do lobbyists and sex offenders have in common? You’ll have to listen to the find out the answer, which also comes along with some food and drink recommendations for your extended quarantine.

She’s also the vendor of politically subversive (meaning politically incorrect) swag, such as “Swamp Lives Matter” t-shirts and mugs at PoliticalStitch.

    It sounded like she said her sister’s hospital has admitted 150 new patients so far today.  Wow!

    Ms. Hunt sounds like a sweet person but she clearly has been over-educated as evidenced by here belief that climate change is something that we should and can do anything about.

    Just listened to this today. As the oldest of seven and a father of six homeschooled kids, I have a soft spot for kids from big homeschooling families. She sounds like a lovely and intelligent woman. And, for the most part, she sounds like a progressive, albeit a funny and up-beat one. That, at least, is a pleasant change.
