McCain: 'Disgraceful' that Trump unwilling to stand up to tyrant Putin

Philand-thropy

As far as the work-to-payoff ratio goes, gag cartoons must be somewhere towards the bottom of the artistic pile.

The fact is, during my last sojourn to Europe in 2004, I faced an up-hill climb in combating the stereotypes Europeans (those I talked to, anyway) had of Americans as loutish, close-minded, vainglorious oafs (with access to long-range missiles and a sense of entitlement).
