Against Extremism

But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao, You ain’t gonna make it with anyone anyhow.

Back on the Bisexual Democrat Beat

Bidding good-bye to a pathetic quitter: The Gods of the Copybook Headings always have the last laugh, and those familiar with Rudyard Kipling’s poetry must have smiled at the sudden downfall of California Rep.
