can practically drink the flop sweat in the air, it's so thick. And
leave it to the Republican Party to pull the ultimate card, employee
intimidation, to try to pull off a November surprise that a five
year-old can tell them ain't gonna happen. Yes, during the year when
we've bullied bullying in the classroom and the schoolyard, the GOP
actually thinks bullying your employees into voting Republican is a good
Check out this clip
of Deadbeat Dad Joe Walsh on the 13th talking to, predictably, old
white people. He tells his constituents that if they run a business, now
would be a great time to "energize" their employees and tell them to

with itself is to see who can jack up their rates the highest and
fastest. We saw that about six years ago when that abomination known as
RomneyCare took effect just before Willard traipsed off on the campaign
