#1 I enjoy reading Mercer, but she's definitely a classic sout piel who somehow can't bring herself to apply for American citizenship.

#2 A clip from the column.
hide their feelings and are spare with their emotions. When they show their softer side, it actually means something. Each is dutiful and dependable.
Such qualities, once considered desirable in a man, now offend the dominatrixes who run the nation's newsrooms.

#3 Money was Mitt's Mark of Cain. So were his wicked work ethic and whiteness.
Obama tapped into the anger of his constituency and turned it into votes. Every slight, every claim to victimhood, shortcoming, downsizing, job shipped to China, perceived wrong, foreclosure, repossession, layoff was blamed on Romney (and Bush and Pubs). The MSM was complicit in fanning these flames. Obama's voters never saw these things as spin-offs of costly and ever-expanding statism. Still, the election was close.

#6 A non-gender specific attribution. She lives here, but I pretty certain she's not a USCIT.

#7 Strange how all those vet cemeteries are filled with old white men [and some very 'young' too but never to get older].

#9 I wonder if I'm the only one who is pissed as hell at those who refrained from voting because Romney / the GOP wasn't quite good enough, thereby handing the election to Obama.
