    Most of the "wolf crying" seems to come from BHO's advocates crying "Racism!"

    The "Koch conferences" are perfectly legitimate exercises of political free speech. What's your issue? Mrs. Thomas's activities are irrelevant.

    Gore lost fair and square. FDR was tempted by fascism, but drew back.
