Happy Monday folks.. OK, now get over that feeling.
Many of the conservatives on this site are familiar with David Nolan. Nolan, the inventor of the 'Worlds Smallest Political Quiz' was also one of the principle founders of the Libertarian Party. Nolan died yesterday at the age of 66.
Many of you might also be familiar with Kwame Kilpatrick. It seems another brave stripper has decided to take her chances with new testimony as a new witness saying the rumored Manoogian party happened.
And if you haven't caught the news, we have a new Michigan based airline?? (Shameless plug for some creative endeavors that might work) Over at MTTM.
Why does the term 'Inmate running the asylum' come to mind when I hear that Debbie Stabenow now runs the agriculture committee in the US Senate? Note the reference of FOOD to FUEL in her comment.. sigh..
