AVI speaks up for the Social Conservatives. I think you could call them "normal, decent people."
Boston: "We're #1." In ugliness, totalitarian-style. I think that building was designed to make people terrified of their government. Why didn't they build something human-scale and welcoming, instead of something that looks like it has security cameras and 50 mm machine gun mounts?

Very amusing. Dennis Miller on Palin's great sex life, Obama, and other topics (h/t, Tiger):
