Going for the Gold

“….It will be his Waterloo; it will break him.” –Soon-to-be former Senator (!) Jim DeMint astutely predicting President Obama’s imminent political demise. Probably one of the best things about being Republican is that they have a safety net that really is a hammock, that is if your idea of a hammock is a reversible sable/chinchilla [...]
