The Future of Post-modern Racism Is the Rich, Liberal SWPL
Cliven Bundy and Donald Sterling, Registered Democrat, both say the most outrageous things. Perhaps each man’s Paleo diet has set back his brain several decades. They’re old, ignorant, and make Archie Bunker look like a Rhodes Scholar. The punch-lines write themselves now that he stupid enough to throw the chum in the water. To sum it up, Mr. Bundy offers us the old racist argument | Read More »
