I had the opportunity to talk with Rob Simmons (R CAND, CT-SEN) this afternoon, so of course we discussed the recent art theft in Paris… no, of course I’m joking.

Fair enough. They’re throwing a conference this week. So far, so good. There’s a bunch of people from | Read More »
Chris Dodd (D-CT) thinks that you’re all a bunch of Nazis.
Because you can tell the difference between pouring water on a towel held over the mouth of three separate individuals (and under very carefully controlled conditions), and sending 17 million people to the gas chamber*. (H/T: Melissa Clouthier) But, do you know something? Don’t get mad. Get even. More here. Moe Lane *For the record: this comment does not mean that I deny you your | Read More »
