The MAGAs are nothing if not plagiarists and sometimes they can't even do that right. This image of Joe Biden was meant to be insulting but paradoxically, it's having the opposite affect. It's sending a positive message. Where it backfires...
Life is immeasurably better since the night little Loula Belle Kitten climbed up the front screen door, asking to be let into my life. The love is mutual — and so is the training. I realise that as I...
