Lunacy Reigns

I would also like to see America divided into two parts. Our part gets the Constitution and the rule of law; the other guys get Obama and liberalism. The difference between the two groups is obvious.

It didn’t take long, following the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby earlier this week, for many liberals to explode into full-fledged hysteria mode.
