Just days after Burke declared that [...]

The Disrespecting of Mary Lazich

Mary Lazich, the sweet lady, the model of congeniality who holds profound respect for everything from woodland critters, to the mighty titans of society, was victimized by the Evil Lena Taylor, who refused to stop bullying a committee attorney.

Republicans, including Wisconsin’s own, Sean Duffy, weak in the polls

Well we knew that this would happen eventually. Republicans have lit a fire under the people of the United States with this shutdown.
