They mean voting, of course, yeah right, no sexual imagery in this ad from the Obama campaign. The Obama campaign has lost whatever mind it had left, it has sunk to lows never seen before.  (Video h/t RightScoop) How respectful of women to suggest that they should be motivated by sex, oh, I…

You remember Aunt Bea.  The Aunt on Elizabeth Warren’s mother’s side who supposedly a thousand times told Warren that Warren’s maternal ancestors had “high cheekbones like all the Indian’s do.” Those ancestors, of course, were not Cherokee or Native American, and even Warren identified Aunt Bea as White on her death certificate.  It is likely…
