Thank goodness we have generals like Sarah Palin standing, as my friend Barry Farber would say, on the ramparts with a broken bourbon bottle, defending us from all those "angry atheists" who have declared war on Christmas, the ones who want to steal it away from the pro-American...

Dear NRA, Please Put Me on Your Enemies List

(924) Comments | Posted February 1, 2013 | 4:42 PM

Mitt Romney, when you stand on that $2.5 million stage in Tampa to accept the nomination, the one being built to make you look likeable, remember, you didn't build that. Your fine-tailored suits that signal your business success -- the threads that you bought with some of the...
