, ,

http://twitter.com/#!/davidfrum/status/496295992590077952 David Frum wrote a brilliant book, Dead Right, in 1994. His intellect, however, has become steadily less impressive over time.

Or maybe the singer/songwriter B.o.B.? Tweeters are all too aware of how bad things have gotten: http://twitter.com/#!/apriljhk/status/496297089752915969 http://twitter.com/#!/averybullard/status/496297230337200130 […]

What makes FNC’ Shannon Bream ‘want to hate the very lovable James Rosen’?

http://twitter.com/#!/lbrewer36/status/441313191222464512 Hmmm … that’s what we thought, too. Until Rosen’s FNC colleague Shannon Bream shared this: http://twitter.com/#!/ShannonBream/status/441312844936937473 We can see where she’s coming from. After all, who wouldn’t want to be in Paris instead of the D.C. swamp? Then again, it’s important to have some perspective: http://twitter.com/#!/BenWilhelm1230/status/441313085345628160 Good point. *** Related: Shannon Bream: ‘More worried […]
