Nancy "demands accountability" on the DCCC site

First, poison pet food. Now, poison toothpaste

Personally, I use baking soda. But other people may actually believe the marketing and buy the non-commodity product from the corps. BBC:

Health officials in the United States say they are checking all shipments of toothpaste imported from China for contamination with toxic chemicals.

Now they're checking. Um, how many years has the poison been in our toothpaste?

Oh, shit. Stop whining. It's only a little engine coolant: Read more about First, poison pet food. Now, poison toothpaste

Al Qaeda is blowback from torture

The Justice Department's former White House liaison denied Wednesday that she played a major role in the firings of U.S. attorneys last year and blamed Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty for misleading Congress about the dismissals.
