Liberal Base Beside Itself

Failure is hard to face. And right now with the Alito confirmation all but over with the vote tomorrow, the liberal base is faced with the harsh reality. It was all for nothing. For example, Meteor Blades says ‘Never Surrendor’ – but why continue if you are never going to win? Even though we knew […]

Cloture Vote!

Carnival Of The Clueless
