With his latest book, “Jesus on Trial: A Lawyer Affirms the Truth of the Gospel,” Limbaugh remains true to form. In fact, having read nearly every manuscript he’s penned, I believe this to be, hands down, David’s best and most important work to date.

Ginsburg tells you everything you need to know about Ginsburg: "I would not look to the U.S. Constitution, if I were drafting a Constitution in the year 2012," she disgracefully vomited a couple years back in an interview about the fledgling Egyptian government.
