There weren't quite as many death threats on Barack Obama from the audience.

Kudos to Rob Kall for going into the "belly of the Beast". That was very, very courageous (unless he had a good disguise). But so many people weren't there to engorge themselves with all things right(eous) I thought I'd write about what I imagined it to be. So...

Targets of the Fairness Doctrine - Tucker Carlson

Al Franken and ACORN: How Liberals are Destroying the American Election System - The Heritage Foundation

Master of Ceremonies: Rep. Michelle Bachmann (MN) (Get set for some rapier-like Christofascist wit)
