Bill Clinton is so full of shit

Bill Clinton, that loveable rogue. I still have a soft spot for him because he's so damn good at what he does[1]. And no matter the reason, the Clinton 90s were better for a lot of Americans than Bush's oughts or Obama's teens; real wages, on average, went up, for example. But that was a long time ago, and what has Bill or any Clinton done for me lately? But dear lord. This is unforgivable:

Was the Senate stolen via voter suppression?

I have not looked at the races closely enough to know; but certainly voter suppression in North Carolina and elsewhere was being carried out on an industrial scale. It may be that the Republicans would have won anyway; but the Democrats will not be able to win if their base is disenfranchised. Read below the fold...

Penny for the Guy

Remember, remember the fifth of November

When really, they were not.
