Excerpted from this post at Political Fallout
... I've noticed a number of other patterns and/or trends that have emerged along the dusted-up trail over time. Let's begin with the Democrats: ... 2. The Son of a Mill Worker was locked up in solitary confinement once the "War on Lobbyists" was officially declared. 3.
