Don’t Buy It!

$69.00 on QVC but hey, make three payments of $23.00 on “easy pay” and you won’t feel it (that’s what QVC is hoping for).

When would you wear this?

Obama Bows to the Righties — Does Photo-Op Speech in Arlington

Righties turned up the heat last week when President Obama decided to spend the Memorial Day weekend in Chicago instead of in D.C. and at Arlington National Cemetery, laying a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier.

But no.  The Israeli lobby in the United States is so powerful that if they had their way, it would be a crime for me to put this post up.

Oh, and I agree with these tweets of the day, from The Young Turks:
