Golfing While the Constitution Burns

by Ben Johnson When Barack Obama and John Boehner played golf this weekend, they played on the same team. How appropriate.

Although the media claim the party's voters have learned their lesson by settling for the “electable” John F. Kerry, a cursory examination of the Democrats shows they remain animated by anti-Bush furor. The party rank-and-file may have decided they prefer the sing-song cadences of John … [Read more...]
