Jenn Taylor @jennqpublic
Jenn is a conservative blogger who grew up in New York City. She escaped blue state academia for redder pastures in the South where she now lives with her husband and a puppy named Knuckles. Jenn likes to wear jeans to thwart creepy liberals who say they need to lift conservative chicks’ skirts to see if they’re really women. She co-hosts That’s What She Said on FTR Radio and has contributed to Human Events, PJ Media, and several other conservative publications.
Lori Ziganto @snarkandboobs
Lori is a home-schooling mom to a 9-year-old daughter. She is also daughter of Daft Scottish Mom, who calls her an ‘awful wee lassie’ on a daily basis. She cannot argue with this assessment. Mark Steyn and Thomas Sowell are her “Thinkies Porn” and she is one of those icky fiscal and social Conservatives. Between laundry, Barbies and school, Lori is also a blogger who writes for RedState, Human Events,CafeMom and Big Journalism. Lori also very much enjoys the evil substances known as salt, red meat, and bacon. She is the co-host of That’s What She Said on FTR Radio.
Sarah Desprat @sarahbellumd
Sarah was born just outside of Chicago to two pretty awesome parents. Seriously. They’re awesome. While attending Grinnell College in Iowa, she majored in biology, got turned off by leftism, and saw a lot of corn. She’s a recent transplant to Colorado after living and working in the D.C. area for about a year and a half, and she couldn’t be happier to be far away from the swamp. Also, she can see mountains from her house. Sweet! She loves food and dogs and languages and “Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld.” She really wants to bake cookies with Greg, Bill, and Andy. She’s addicted to Twitter and thinks Roald Dahl was the greatest writer ever, even though he was kind of a huge jerk in real life. And she wishes she were taller. That’d be nice.
Brett Taylor @punkasscracker
Brett is a husband and father of two who has lived his life near the Great Lakes. Several years spent in academia studying English literature convinced him he wasn’t a liberal after all. He is an avid Anglophile who enjoys reading manga, entering remix competitions, and live DJing his wife’s treadmill workouts.
Jacob Bunn @jacobbunn
Jacob’s passion is his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Lives in Birmingham, Alabama, and is studying Public Relations in college. He is a sports reporter, writer, and podcaster, primarily covering college football. He is a member of the Football and Basketball Writers Associations of America. He owns and publishes www.BunnSports.com. Additionally, he is involved in various other sports media projects.
Adam Brickley @adambrickley
Adam is a conservative blogger best known for his 2007-2008 venture “Draft Sarah Palin for Vice President,” which garnered national media attention. Adam has been published by the Daily Caller, the Weekly Standard Blog, Conservatives4Palin, and Race42012.com. He has appeared on CNN, FoxNews, the BBC, and The Colbert Report. He is a passionate follower of international politics and elections, active in Messianic Judaism, a foodie, a Trekkie, a musical theatre nerd, and a semi-obsessed fanboy of Australian conservative leader Tony Abbott. Originally from Colorado Springs, Colo., Adam currently lives and works in the District of Columbia. For those wondering, yes he still thinks Sarah Palin is awesome.
William Amos @williamamos
William has a degree in International Studies/Russian Language. He has worked as a political intern in both state and federal races. He enjoys politics, both foreign and domestic. He has been a Republican since he cast his first vote for Ronald Reagan in 1980. He loves to travel and has a dream to get on the TV Travel show “The Amazing Race” with his brother.
Enjoys running in the mountains of Colorado Springs. Loves playing Settlers of Catan with his wife, daughter, and son. Favorite quote:
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
