I was gonna write a fun open thread and ask y’all about your Thanksgiving plans, but then the Ferguson grand jury bullshit came down, and NOPE.
Last week was terrible.
Yesterday, Mother Jones brought attention to several surreptitiously-obtained videos from a Romney fund-raising event. In the videos, Governor Romney reveals that he doesn’t care about the people who will vote for President Obama, because Obama voters are a bunch of layabout whinypants parasites. (Paraphrased.)
