Bill Clinton sends fundraising damage control letter
Going back to the point I made earlier in the day, I don’t have to make up lies about Democrats. If I can’t develop a migraine by the end of the day just seeing what they are doing in the open I’m just not trying. Case in point. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, Petra Nemcova, a Czech model who | Read More »

Obamacare is the biggest example of this, but the Department of Labor has just given us another.

The Circle of Jerks Turns From Scott Walker to Ted Cruz
The Circle of Jerks went blind the other day over a quote from Scott Walker about ultrasounds prior to an abortion being “cool.” The Politico ran it. Various left leaning journalists circulated it.
