Ready for a Biden-Warren Ticket?

The political pundits are all agog over the latest rumor sweeping Washington: that not only will Vice President Joe Biden enter the race to become the Democratic nominee for president, but he has struck a deal with ultra-liberal Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts to become his running mate.

There are untold numbers of illegal aliens in this country, many of whom have already been convicted of other crimes, who are confident they are safe from deportation.

Thanks to another tortured interpretation of the U.S. Constitution by the Supreme Court, we’re going to be stuck with Obamacare for at least the next year and a half.

Even the Vatican may be surprised at the massive amount of praise Pope Francis’ latest encyclical is receiving. That’s because of its passionate advocacy of the need to take strong action in the face of global warming — and its equally strong denunciation of capitalism and free markets. No wonder the left loves it!
