Ada Fisher - Yeah, that one - Seems to think it is Okey Dokey to Lie

Who knew Ada Fisher was running against Mel Watt again? I sure didn't. I have got to climb out from under this rock every now and then. What's even more surprising for me is that I found this out at Wonkette of all places.

No....seriously. McCain has asked Dr. Ada Fisher to speak on his behalf.

What Pat McCrory means by 'changing the culture' in Raleigh

What is it about Republicans? Do they really think they can tell whatever lies they want and no one will notice?

Forty-seven MILLION Americans currently have absolutely NO health insurance coverage. Of that forty-seven Million Americans, two-thirds of those without health insurance are poor or near poor, and there are clear disparities in how different racial and ethnic groups are affected. Only 13 percent of non-Hispanic white Americans is uninsured, compared with 36 percent of Hispanics, 33 percent of Native Americans, 22 percent of blacks and 17 percent of Asians/Pacific Islanders.
