Possibly drunk pelican hits windshield

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. - The driver was sober. The bird he hit may have been under the influence.

These people have no respect for democracy, for civil rights, for civil liberties, for blacks, for women, for gays, for Latinos, for Muslims, for democracy and for any Christian religion other than hate-filled Baptists. Republicans have become petty thugs who do whatever they please because it feels good, to hell with the law. This isn't the America we fight wars for. It's the America we fight wars to avoid becoming.
