12. Thanks for posting, Kadie!

All this was happening while the GOP elephants in the room and their principal sycophantic and propaganda network were going "Wah!"

The group dynamics as shown in the photos are wonderful.

and grabbing for him. Just curious...

15. I just can't imagine the troops taking to R-Money--a rich, detached, out of touch

politician who has no clue about the lives of these troops back home. Many of them come from poor or disadvantaged neighborhoods and felt that the only way out of their situation was to join the military. R-Money has no clue!
