Adrian: Brita = best comment tonight.
Dontre: Her reward is in heaven?
Adrian: "Say it ain't so Jo" "Doggonit" FOR GOD SAKES, YOU WANT TO BE A HEARTBEAT AWAY FROM THE PRESIDENCY!!!
Emily: She sounds like the Church Lady.
Dontre:...Read more »
Dontre: So was the stupid assertion: John McCain knows how to win a war!
There it is! The BUSH DOCTRINE.
Dontre: Oh, now they've multiplied
