An Evangelical group is trying to stop implementation of a landmark California ban on ex-gay Ancient-trepanning"therapy," claiming it infringes on the private rights of patients. Makes perfect sense, because obviously the customer is always right.

Mathew Staver, dean of Liberty University law school, claims:

Take Me To Your Leader So I Can Kiss His Rings Comments (0)

Now that the U.S.'s policy in Libya is vindicated inasmuch as its malevolent dictator appears to be out of power, of course the GOP is patting President Obama on the back for staying the course and helping to see this NATO-assisted (and Libyan-people-powered) victory to conclusion?

It's not like a Republican to forget the U.S. is at war (like, several times over), but that's exactly what Mitt Romney did.
