Not Just the Weekly Grind: Last Week’s Roundup
- Sean Penn Calls Tea Party the ‘Get the N-Word Out of the White House Party’ Which Wants to ‘Lynch’ Obama

This, of course, while Herman Cain tops polls of Republican primary voters. Yet

And gods forbid if the soldiers in that crowd make a showing, because it’s easy to criticize the hippies, but how do you criticize the soldiers as different? You can’t, really.

What can I say? Very well said, indeed...
