So Political Insider is reporting that Gingrey is skipping the first debate this weekend. My prediction is that he doesn’t even qualify to run and drops out of the race very soon.

Gingrey refuses to participate in another debate. Looks like he is getting out of the race by the end of the month.

AIDS: Vile theory- how has this group been successful in 57 0f 60 closed cases ?

Stefan January 14, 2014 at 10:36 am

It’s a mystery. It is going to trial today though, expected to last the rest of the week. Clayton County seems to have fallen into the trap that they feel they must prove AIDS exists before they can proceed with prosecution.

“enthymeme”

I bet you say that to all the rhetoricians.

Stefan January 14, 2014 at 10:37 am

Just you.

I’ve been to almost all of those 11 bars. Mr. Sleaze is one of my favorites. What’s funny is how much they “classed up the joint” and it is still awful.
