      I agree, we have a very whacked world where we wonder and wait to see what wonderful witicisms will wriggle their way on to the wild and totally unpredictable web. When one is able to wrangle a wise and concise reply it is a wonderment, as we have a tendencey to wheel away from topics and wrestle with what is more to our liking.

    Now that Ryan has hit the campaign trail as Romney's RM, the war hawks and assorted nuts with the ideology bug would be celebrating.
    A person gets a slot for becoming the next leader of the Free World sans all that is needed to be that.
    Voters beware.
