I don't know if you ever watch The Young Turks, but they did a piece on how ridiculous that whole thing is.

It must take an incredible amount of research to publish this blog. Good Work Troy.

Hi PC, I check the Young Turks evey now and then just to see what they're up to - I'll have to search their site for the abuses of power and mrs. palin.

for me, it's all about passion and my twisted sense of humor, just trying to throw my views out there. Have a great day!
