She Really Can See Russia From Her House!

I could not help but smile at these two headlines today: Sarah Palin: President Obama Needs to Be Spanked Gateway Pundit, by Jim Hoft Original Article Posted By:JoniTx, 11/3/2014 2:52:07 PM Former Governor Sarah Palin laid into Barack Obama for insulting stay-at-home moms this week. Obama told a crowd of clueless female supporters that being a stay-at-home mother is “not a choice we want Americans to make.” It wasn’t the first time Obama attacked stay-at-home moms.
