I love the Republican club for one main reason: they never cease to amaze me with their ability to stir up controversy and draw attention to themselves.

( Not to say Republicans aren’t as well).

You’re right SPSullivan, these liberal groups did make a martyr out of Don Ferder, and there was definitely a better way to go about this whole situation.

I have yet to recieve any counter statements but as always, I’ll keep this updated if I do
