You wouldn’t think it would take Him four shots to pick a winner. By Donald Kaul The Republican primaries have been a tough sled for God, the Father of the party. (Well, Republicans claim He is.)

Go deport yourself

Romney’s “self-deportation” policy is no joke. By Raul A. Reyes I bet Mitt Romney has a sweatshirt that says I (heart) Florida.
