What's the dog's name? I forget.

Might as well put the election on hold, too.  Who could possibly beat this?

I’m sure, a great many.  But none of them will ever be afforded that opportunity.

Yes, by all means, let’s cancel elections per the advisory from the dem governor of North Carolina.  Let the Supercommittee of 12 decide what’s right for America

Personally, I liked the black and whites of JFK and RFK at their leisure; they had an unstaged quality that is missing from the BHO photo ops…

as Jesse Jackson said, it’s all Smiles, Styles and Profiles in politics…....of course JJ was referring to Bush 1; some presidents are more praiseworthy than others (obviously)

the dog’s name is “Pander”

I thought the dog’s name was “Manchurian”.....
