.. have you ever heard any repub politician with a sense of humor?
Me neither.
It takes being able to carry 2 opposing thoughts at the same time, which repubs just can't seem to do..
It takes the ability to 'separate' oneself, to SEE humor in life, to laugh at oneself and one's ideas, to see absurdities. It takes the ability to have genuine good feelings...

SKID MARKS.... tooo perfect.

Happy New Year !!!
