This is transparency in the eyes of Democrats: votes being held in the middle of the night, political bribes and favors being used to buy off hesitant politicians, and secret committees.
Moonbattiest Ravings of 2009 — these are mainstream people saying the most bizarre things. And they are still on the air. Samples:
