    I am mormon so I know that look. He looks like a scared little mormon boy standing up to give a talk with a church full of African Americans for the very first time.

    "When Politics really do get 'Raw' bloods mingle, and there is no way to find any indifferences. There is nothing wrong with beating up on the guy who does all the talking, so long as you don't need a trasfusion afterwards!"
