*+-Kathleen Peine: Universal healthcare is off the table, of course. Because in America, our table is only open for fine dining. It’s that or nothing, kid.

*+-Tom Degan: Michele Bachmann maintains that the Founding Fathers ended slavery, huh? She is off by years. Four score and seven years, to be exact.
