“A party that nominates O’Donnell is a party unfit to govern.”

A party that nominates O’Donnell is a party unfit to govern.

And now that he’s said it, all of us have to repeat it from now until Election Day.

  2. Huh. You're right, it's working fine now, but I swear to God it wasn't when I posted that. Sorry about that, Mark.
