The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the political equivalent of a Daytime Emmy. Completely worthless because it is passed out to a who cares list of sycophants.

I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.

He's the quintessential wannabe, the dork who thinks the cool kids' coolness will rub off on him.

They finally found a use for that fruitcake that has been circulating for centuries. They will use it for the official bust of obama. All they have to do is mount it to the stand and put an obama sticker on it.
