The belly of the beast of Latte Liberals . Big surprise. I wonder how many union drones /black activists were bussed in from Seattle for this phony staged PR event that the Drudge report which has allowed itself to act as Obama as the his official site now.
Its all a phony show to distract the masses from Hillary kicked Osama Obama butt in Kentucky this week.
