Amen to The Rude Pundit

The Rude Pundit is at it again, this time lambasting Democratic senators for their horrible no-show at Alito’s nomination hearings: How about this for a Democratic strategy now and in the debate after – act like the general public is fuckin’ sick of the Republicans and how they’ve led the nation. Act like Americans are begging for someone to stop the crazy train we’re on. ‘Cause if you can’t pull the emergency brake, then youLearn More
