The Radio Derb transcript is up for June 2nd–go here to read or listen.Sample
Barack Obama and his wife have bought their house on Washington, D.C. They had been renting it, now they’ve bought it. Nine bedrooms; eight and a half bathrooms; $8.1 million.

We should at least stop paying the buggers a pension. Repeal the Former Presidents Act!
