A sample conversation...
DB: I’ll tell you the one (besides you two) that really bugs the hell out of me and that is Arianna Huffington. She literally marries into her citizenship, divorces for millions and now runs a character assassination site calling the Muffington Post, I mean, the Huffington Post.

Josh Silver, president of the ill-named FreePress, proves--without a shadow of a scintilla of a doubt—that he is a flat-out totalitarian nut
So much for free speech. The Left, it would appear, really doesn’t support the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, the Tenth Amendment, or the Constitution, for that matter.
Josh Silver, president of the ill-named FreePress, proves—without a shadow of a scintilla of a doubt—that he is a flat-out totalitarian nut. Writing at the Muffington Host, which I’m guessing is also funded by George Soros, Silver decries the Constitution.
