Joan Walsh Needs To Step Up To The Plate And Apologize

Anyone familiar with Joan Walsh will know that about five months ago, Joan found herself in a little kerfuffle with some African American tweeters on Twitter, who took exception to some of the things Joan had said regarding some points she raised in an article written for Salon around the time the President announced his intention to run for re-election, something that seemed, particularly, to irritate Walsh.

Al-Qaeda to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: Shut Up, Fool!

Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is so prone to spouting lies about people and history that few if any literate citizens of the world take what he has to say seriously any more.
