David Kaiser is a PoliticalDerby editor and resident moderate. He works as an administrator at a university school of business and enjoys stumping locals as the host of a pub trivia night. He is a registered Republican, but a devout moderate (is there such an animal?). But don’t mistake “moderate” for “mild” however, as he is regularly mixes it up with the denizens of PD on topics big and small. He is often described by friends and family as a “cool dork” and can often been seen in the kitchen cooking meals for his lovely and very understanding wife.
