By Dave Andrusko At a Democratic National Convention where the overriding theme is that President Obama has been victimized by heartless, uncompromising bully Republicans (reason enough to return him to office), it should come as no surprise that last night activist Sandra Fluke would add another layer of paint to her self-portrait of resident martyr …Continue reading "Fluke, Richards Hail Obama, Denounce Romney"
By Dave Andrusko The highlight of the second day of the Democratic National Convention was supposed to be former President Bill Clinton’s nominating speech.

Susana Martinez and Texas senatorial candidate Ted Cruz, were essentially ignored or not-so-subtly dismissed. So, when I read that San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro …Continue reading "Mayor Castro’s Unintentionally revealing remark"
