Worst for Our Wounded Troops:
Almost exactly one year later, His Junior Freshmannishness Sen. Barrocks-for-brains Obloviator visits the Ritz(y) Gym for a personal workout rather than visiting our wounded Troops at LRMC, because of "a concern that maybe our (how royal-'We' of Him) visit was going to be perceived as political." Translation: "No campaign staff could go in with Me to make sure I don't screw up again." (Swamppolitics.com photo/Albert N. Milliron & GOC Denny)
