Simple questions for Oliver Willis

Since that paid arbiter of moral truth Oliver Willis has set himself as the judge establishing that an unwillingness to consider a Muslim for a Cabinet position makes one a bigot, I have some questions for him: 1.

Marcela Hoeven is one up on me…

Stacy McCain Explains. A memeorandum thread on this? Actually Casey Fiano (who is expecting, congrats to her and her new husband) no slouch in a Bikini herself makes an actual point that has nothing to do with the curves on young Miss Hoeven and everything to do with Liberal stereotyping: And when Sarah Palin came … Continue reading Marcela Hoeven is one up on me…
