Mitt Romney’s Taxes!! (sort of)

So… it is 93 days since Senator (and fellow Mormon) Harry Reid said he had it on good authority that Willard Mitt Romney hadn’t paid income taxes for some ten years. I noted as much in my blog last August. I also mentioned that he had not released a full return yet, since his single […]

The Drone Strike questions that won’t be asked at Monday’s debate

But we don’t have Keith […]
