A Plutocracy of Southpaws.

John McCain is left-handed. So is Barack Obama.

If those two end up going on to be their party’s nominees, we’d be assured our eighth lefty president.

Going back thirty years, only two presidents have been righties — Jimmy Carter and George W. Bush. The rest — Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and Bill Clinton? All living in the mirror.

Just saying.

    it’s still a Right Hand’s world. no real gains will be made until we pick up where the Civil Lefts Movement left off.

    left is where it’s at! why am i not surprised that brokey and barack are lefties too?

  • because the jesus of the heavens has destined us for eternal cosmic marriage, that’s why.

  • …by us i mean me & obama, not me and you, kaya. no offense or anything. its just that obama is the wife for me!
