    Sorry to break your heart Dodd, but Aretha is a Democrat. In fact, she was the featured performer at Obama’s inaugural.

    Do you actually read the things you reference???

    A study on the importance of Fourth of July celebration participation for children to the political leanings in adulthood?

And tries to link that to voter registration numbers a generation later???
    This was from the Onion, right?
