No idea what it means now.

It was old bullet head and turtle that was begging for money.

Maybe the republicans are just buying up email addresses

Just checked old bullet head Trey is back.

They need $150,000 to make history.

Edit here.

It was Ted Cruz not the turtle.

The email said any amount will do no matter how small.

You would think there would be enough rich republicans to chip in.

12. I just heard a story about this guy on NPR earlier today.

I wasn't paying close attention, the radio was on while I was driving, but I remember the last name for sure and the Montana part. Holy crap though... the guy bodyslammed the reporter? With cameras rolling? Swift move.
