Having skipped a year, Popehat will now continue its tradition of polling you, gentle readers, to elect our Censorious Asshat of 2014.

I've accepted an invitation to speak at the Liberty Forum in New Hampshire in February 2014. The Liberty Forum is hosted by the Free State Project, which seeks to persuade libertarian-minded citizens to move to New Hampshire to pursue more limited governments.
