A Prediction

When future archeologists try to understand our legends and customs, I believe they will conclude that Santa Claus was a man in a brown uniform who drove a brown truck to deliver presents to people’s doors.

The Extremes

Those on the left who claim Barack Obama is a Reaganite conservative have no more understanding of actual conservative positions than the wingnuts on the right who claim Obama is a socialist understand actual liberal or socialist views.
