Bush/Rove Goons break federal law yet again...

April 26, 2007 – Comments (3)

Make sure everyone's on board, even those who are, by law, protected from the cowardly politics of cronyism.

This is the behavior of a frightened little despotism, completely unsuited to a real American president.

Regime change should begin at home.

Big surprise, home sales are in the crapper again.

But nevermind the obvious, the spinmeisters at the NAR would like you to know that they "expected" this, and that it is still "a good time to buy."

These guys deserve to be tarred and feathered.
