Mittens Romney got an exemption from the Vietnam draft because white salamander sister wives or whatever. He went to live in fancy France. And then he protested in favor of the draft. Interesting how that works. [ABC News]

While it’s silly to accuse Perry Clark of illegally purchasing pills, it’s not silly to discuss his pot parties. Which he has all the time. Typically in his back yard.
