VIDEO: Scalise Trashes Obama’s Budget, Bracket

SARGE: Our Eunuch President

Paraphrasing Brendan Behan: Obama practicing diplomacy is like a eunuch in a harem; he knows how it’s done; he’s seen how it’s done, he’s seen it done by others, but he’s unable to do it himself.    SARGE I must admit... (Continue reading)

VIDEO: Jindal, On Baier, Continues Hammering Democrats

“We don’t have kings in this country.” One wonders whether the people who carped at Jindal in front of the White House after he took out his flamethrower and covered the president with it knew that he’d been booked for... (Continue reading)
