The right is not known for its record of promoting or esteeming (other than objectifying) women. Ersatz leader, philosophical guru and GOP Cultural Minister Rush Limbaugh is known for his scathing insults toward Women’s Lib and to women in general.Theirs … Continue reading
We talked at length about many things, the very least of which was politics (which we didn’t discuss at all) since they seem petty when compared with the daily drama played out in real-time by our troops.
