War is peace. Freedom is slavery. George Orwell’s Ministry of Truth is now incarnated in the White House.
To paraphrase an old ‘60s bumper sticker, it’s like having sex to preserve virginity.
They know what the truth is, and they HATE it.
Before long, Bobby Gibbs is going to start telling anyone who doubts Obama is “just a poopyhead”.
Yeah, like Elin Nordegren smacked Tiger upside the head with his own golf club because she was just so thrilled to hear about his affair(s) with Rachel Uchitel...
If it were any state but MA, I’d say it’s absurd. But what have they done that’s not absurd?
These guys are headed toward the biggest political disaster in our lifetimes. I will enjoy every moment.
Threw the British out on Evacuation day,
setting the stage for Washington at Brooklyn Heights?
