Contrary to popular belief, tailgating was not invented by Al Gore before he invented the Internet, global warming and Seven Eleven convenience stores. The original tailgate episode is said to have occurred in 1869 at the first ever college football game played between Princeton and Rutgers. Fans were hungry beforeRead More

President Obama has not been particularly engaged in Iraq. He concluded that he is so likable that people in the media heap massive kudos on him for anything he does. Why shouldn’t terrorists?
