The Optional President

Friday, August 1st, 2008

Many call George Bush the Imperial President - although he thinks he's more of a new messiah fella. I prefer to call him the Optional President. He behaves as if the law is nothing more than a rough guideline he can opt into or out of like a failed bank's ...

The NJ state Republican web site was running a banner slogan saying "Obama Loves America like OJ Loved Nicole" - boy, that's the kind of political discourse that elevates the process.  Who, them racist?  No "oh my God, it's a scary black man!" theme there.  Subtle as a flying mallet, ...
