Posted by: Brian on April 8, 2009 at 9:58 pm » 8 Comments

During the last eight years, if a conservative blogger dared say anything in support of Bush or Congressional Republicans, we were accused of being shills, being paid to say/write what we said/wrote. Which explains why so many conservative bloggers are retired and living on their own private islands. Turns out that was mere projection by […]

To answer my post’s title: obviously, when it’s B.
