Weekend Reading

R.I.P. - G.O.P. Edition

Carrying on my thoughts that the GOP is so beyond reality at this point that the only way to slap them back to reality is to root for (I'll regret saying this...) Speaker Nancy Pelosi. (oh the shame!). But seriously, five years into this and we're $4 trillion more into debt, corruption is rampant, and the focus in congress is FMA, flag burning and the pledge. Pathetic.
