The month of November was nothing if not exciting: war in the Mideast, approaching fiscal cliffs and a scandal involving a cover-up at the highest levels of the Administration and the intelligence community. Oh, and some guy named Barack Obama won a second Presidential term.
Answer the question, Harry Reid. Who’s checking your email? And whatever happened to poor Elmo? All this — plus — the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man! Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
