  1. Ha! Katherine Mangu-Ward holds up a card saying “Republicans – Evil, Democrats – Stupid,” and the guy next to her says, when holding up his card “because I am a democrat, I couldn’t [use] one word, I had to use two.” The host then forgives her guest, and he excuses himself as “a Democrat.” Oh, the irony.

    1. I don’t think that’s “irony”. I think that’s “poetry”.

  2. is it just me or is alyona really hot?

    1. Sort of. I thought KM-W was pretty hot in the video.

  3. “The Republicans… have a captive television network.”

    Which makes it much easier on them, because the Democrats have to deal with four captive television networks which is much harder.

    Look at Libertarians; all they have to do is control is and and the two are constantly yelling at each other. 🙂

  4. GOP is “a party of small government”? Was this a recent change?

  5. truth,,,,obama people have no idea of the extent to which they have to be gulled in order to be led.”
    “The size of the lie is a definite factor in causing it to be believed, for the vast masses of the nation are in the depths of their hearts more easily deceived than they are consciously and intentionally bad. The primitive simplicity of their minds renders them a more easy prey to a big lie than a small one, for they themselves often tell little lies but would be ashamed to tell a big one.”
    “All propaganda must be so popular and on such an intellectual level, that even the most stupid of those towards whom it is directed will understand it. Therefore, the intellectual level of the propaganda must be lower the larger the number of people who are to be influenced by it.”
    “Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.”pelosi don’t see much future for the Americans … it’s a decayed country. And they have their racial problem, and the problem of social inequalities …obama feelings against Americanism are feelings of hatred and deep repugnance … everything about the behaviour of American society reveals that it’s half Judaised, and the other half negrified. How can one expect a State like that to hold TOGTHER.They include the angry left wing bloggers who spread vicious lies and half-truths about their political adversaries… Those lies are then repeated by the duplicitous left wing media outlets who “discuss” the nonsense on air as if it has merit? The media’s justification is apparently “because it’s out there”, truth be damned. STOP THIS COMMUNIST OBAMA ,GOD HELP US ALL .THE COMMANDER ((GOD OPEN YOUR EYES)) stop the communist obama & pelosi.((open you eyes)) ,the commander
