Well, that and the password to the secret Russian bank account set up for you before you ran for office.


Most of the family will just wait for the movie.


I used crayons and a lot of sticky notes, seems to be a crowd pleaser when we’re all shitfaced.


Can they whitewash the skeletons in our closets?


I had a small problem with the blurb/flickr mode
