” Maybe Republicans will say no to him.
They will.... NO PROBLEM<OBAMA
“Contemptible” is more like it.
“How does this guy remember the lyrics to that ditty thats about 50 years old? “
I believe he got his profession start as a DJ and writing about show tunes and other popular music. When something is your profession, you tend remember details for long periods of time. He switched to political writing rather recently, I believe.
