OOOh, to be a fly on that wall.
- Classless and clueless. Non-liberals have been fired for much, much less.

- German Chancellor Angela Merkel reviled over saying Christianity is the most persecuted religion on earth.
- Disaster preparedness is on everyone’s List for Santa this year. Remember you need a generator to run the blender when the lights go out. It’s going to be a long winter, folks.
BREAKING UPDATE: CIA Chief Gen. David Patraeus resigns. Or is he falling on his sword?
