No, cultural conservatives 'have not yet begun to fight.' The question is whether we ever will.

Eleven more victories to go
The Blackhawks usually play down to- and below- the level of their opponents in the first couple of games of a Stanley Cup series before reaching down and finding what it takes to win. Like outworking the other guys. So I guess that last night's 4-3 victory...

Not good news for the Hillarymeister

Iran is cheating already
Wouldn't it be great to have a president who was at least a little tougher to fool? Is it January 20, 2017 yet? HT: Drudge
