There’s a tidbit in the update to the Hot Air post on Giuliani’s health care ad that struck me as really humorous.

Tom Brady may be having the Season to End All Seasons, but Brett Favre is still the baddest man in the house. That winning pass was the most beautiful long ball you will see all year. Give some love to Jay Cutler. He’s a young QB who is going to have a heck of a […]

Finally, a prominent Democrat has decided to get pugnacious with the 9/11 “Truther” Morons.
