This experience has created in me an appreciation for those who always strive to “make … Read More

Perhaps we should call this divergent condition “Democratic dementia,” because only a serious mental disease could explain the remarks California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi made to the National Press Club on January 31.

Pelosi, who is the Democratic Party’s leader in the … Read More
