Because 'I Miss Bush' Sounded Too Much Like Contraception

Because 'I Miss Bush' Sounded Too Much Like Contraception
Finally, proof that the GOP has truly hit rock bottom. No, it's not their "corporations are people with religious beliefs" piling on in the wake of the Hobby Lobby case. It's not even their candidates and talk radio loudmouths who think women only use birth control for "recreational sex." Nope, it's these "I Miss W" t-shirts the GOP is shilling for $27 a pop.

Bergdazi Entrenched: Republicans Scramble to Delete Praise of US POW Bergdahl's Release
Republicans are trying their very hardest to scrub from the internet any and all praise, including "thoughts and prayers," for Bowe Bergdahl. Guess they wanted him to come home until Obama spurred the decision to get it done. Apparently, it took more than magic to bring home a captive U.S. soldiers.
