Blogger: Government-Hater Snyder in the ‘Dark Tradition’ of Reagan
February 8th, 2016 10:15 PM
If the eventual Republican presidential nominee takes the advice of The Washington Monthly’s D.R. Tucker, he’ll choose Michigan governor Rick Snyder as his running mate, not in spite of what happened to Flint’s water supply, but because of it.

Another Sunday LGBT Sermon from the WashPost: 'When No Gender Fits'
September 21st, 2014 9:10 AM
The Washington Post has made it clear that Sunday is not the Lord’s Day. It’s the best day for LGBT preaching. In 2012, they splashed across the front page “TRANSGENDER AT FIVE.” In this Sunday edition, it’s an 18-year-old girl: “WHEN NO GENDER FITS.”

Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was sentenced to 28 years in prison yesterday.
