54-45!
And best of all, he's a real progressive. Bonilla is supposed to be some close Bush family friend, and I'm enjoying a little December gloating on top of all that we enjoyed last month. Read below the fold...

Illegal aliens who are male and between the ages of 18 and 26 must register for Selective Service, aka the draft.

Chaos Is The Plan vs. The Shia Are The Plan

Following up on Shystee's post (check the picture!), one of the slow pleasures of the last year or so has been watching the eminently sane Josh Marshall become more Shrill, as he loses any deference to the insane authoritarians who are ruling us. Josh opines: Read below the fold...
