Protests! Protests! Protests! Protests! Protests! Protests! Wow. And here’s Joe the Plumber, milking it.  Speaking of Joe the Plumber, what WOTS would be complete without some Sarah Palin bashing from our favorite opining outlets? You know—eating young, torturing the bible—all that good stuff. Also from the Observer, we gain literary prowess! […]
