I'm a left-wing guy and even I don't give a shit about this faux-outrage 'scandal.'
Nobody outside of MSNBC and the SLOG gives a shit, either. If my lefty brethren had any sense, they'd be pimping Rand Paul for his run at the brass ring.
The more right-wing wackos the better I say. I'll buy more popcorn.

Godspeed, I say. A socialist on the city council would be entertaining. I'll make popcorn.

Their ideal world would be like something out of a dystopian Terry Gilliam movie.
(Although big-money real estate developers would love it.)
