Whenever his name is mentioned I think of Basketball Jones.
“I’ll go one on one against the world, left-handed
I could stuff it from center court with my toes
I could jump on top of the backboard
Take off a quarter, leave fifteen cents change
I could, I could dribble behind my back
I got more moves than Ex-Lax I’m bad.........”
Your lips to God's ears, Mister Commie.

“Glad” Van Jones thinks Mitt is a conservative.

Not to worry, the astro turf Rinos are in the process of finishing off the teaparty, damn shame it happened so fast...
Gee....and I thought they have been saying that the “Tea Party” was just a fad, there are fewer people joining “the movement,” and they no longer hold sway with ‘current thought.’ Don’t tell me these were just more lies. LMAO!
