The one where I take Christine O’Donnell’s side

Christine O’Donnell opposes comprehensive, evidence-based sex ed. She’s unclear about whether separation of church and state is a cornerstone of the first amendment.

My Tiger Woods Post

While we all know about the tabloid chatter that’s attached itself to Mike’s legacy, it can’t really tarnish […]
