5 Contemporary Political Headlines That Already Happened
It was the wise George Santayana who said, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." In no arena is this truer than American politics (unless, of course, you count The Real Housewives of.... franchise). Over and over again, we fight the same battles and wage the same wars. And every once in a while, when you really think that an issue has been beaten to death, that it has irrevocably been decided (like say, forced sterilization or women's suffrage), it jumps...
8 Statements About Senator Jon Kyl That Aren't Intended as Factual Statements
