Repugnicans vs Libtards…

Friends,   This isn’t a post about hizzoner or the lies which, even for the DC political scene are creating a new definition of the word “normal.”   But I’m not going to write about that. Really. It’s a challenge but…   We’ve been had.   Rather, I want to write something about how “Patriots” […]

Apples and Oranges
