Boozing it up — on the clock — on Capitol Hill

For BarryO & the gang, GAY is OK as the word of the DAY

  The economy is in the the toilet.  Our troops are at war.  Political chaos is popping up all over the globe.  BarryO, “Dingy Harry” Reid, and Miss Nancy are focused on gay rights.   First, BarryO and Hillary tell us that the promotion of…

Indictment of Boss Bev cronies is like deja vu all over again …
