@SamuelCookIII Where is MittRomney’s American flag lapel pin? Why doesn’t he love America? Oh, wait. He’s white.

@PolitiFact We checked Rick Perry statement that more & more scientists are questioning climate change. False.

@rugcernie You know there’s something wrong with a crowd when they applaud executions, even if they’re pro capital punishment.
