    It is only fitting that Sarah Palin’s political demise should occur during this season of so many other celebrity deaths…

  3. Truly, news you can use.

    And, lest we forget, Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.

    I guess Tom Hagen was able to get him off the hook after all…….for old times sake.

    lol, so is that liberal Icon Darwin and his theory…….well most of it anyway………..I think the “I hate God now” part is still going strong…..

    Since it happens in threes maybe we’re safe for a while now that it has hit 6.

    You keep right on telling yourself that evolution is wrong, and one day you might even believe it. The rest of the world, however, has already accepted the truth. My Southern Baptist has accepted the Big Bang theory, evolution is only a matter of time.

    Since it happens in threes maybe we’re safe for a while now that it has hit 6.

    But that’s only two threes, we won’t be safe until we hit three threes.
