*In His Narcissists Service, by Bernard Chapin.
“Conservatives of America, let us vow to ridicule mercilessly the cult of Obama, those videos honoring him, and the entire left wing of the political spectrum.
Let us also labor to fight socialism and government expansion whenever or wherever it is initiated, combat emotion with reason, and expunge lies with truth.

Welcome to the dark side my friend, you’ve belonged here all along.
