    Liberals have embraced George Will, David Frum, Max Boot, and George Bush but still detest Ralph Nader.
  3. Why all the celebration because Michael Bloomberg is giving the democrats campaign cash? Democrats raise money. That is not their problem. The problem is that they refuse to campaign on the issues their voters want.
  4. Dear everybody, Don't celebrate George Will endorsing democrats. It is just further proof that they are in fact republicans now.

    Stalin begged the allies to open another European front but they instead focused on N. Africa and the Pacific. Churchill and Roosevelt were afraid of heavy casualties. To which I’m sure Stalin was like “I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN HENCE MY REQUEST”
  13. Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union on this date in 1941. More than 20 million people died there before the Red Army emerged victorious. I was never taught that the Soviets were most responsible for victory in Europe.

    So the British Museum has offered to loan stolen Benin Bronzes back to Nigeria. What an insult this is. Benin was actually razed by the British in 1897. The city was looted and most of the treasures remain in Britain to this day.
