This is hilarious. I will not make any jokes about the Dem. Party Chair being nicknamed “The Fern”. OK. Yes I will. LOL
The Edwards camp has set up a site – www.plantsforhillary.com – that takes jabs at Hillary’s Bush-like tendency to have softballs tossed her way. You can even submit your own question and get on their email list! Good stuff. 😉
