For $100 , which includes both shipping and a donation to WBAI, you can have the pleasure of trashing the President every day just as he has trashed the United States Constitution.

Matthews declared he thought this was over in 2006: "I thought white voters had stopped being what they want to be. And you know what it tells me? People aren't proud of who they are."

The amount of oil in storage tanks was very high. But this year, week on week, the oil in ...

Fox Gets it Wrong on Clinton 8.1.2008 Taylor Marsh
Fox Gets it Wrong on Clinton Shocking, right? The above video seemed appropriate considering the morning nonsense out of Major Garrett’s mouth. : I just reached Carville on his cell.
