Tweet (Akiit.com) This one could have been mailed in. Sarah Palin predictably knocked President Obama for, as she put it, failing to “dive in there” and solve the Gulf spill disaster. Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and a rash of GOP senators were slightly more grammatically intelligible but still pounced on Obama for being too cozy […]

Tweet (Akiit.com) Arizona’s new immigration law has sparked countless protests and has some government officials in other states cutting business ties to show their disapproval.
