Jesse Kelly: Putting the “ass” in class.

How public-spirited of him. He just canceled his expected announcement of another campaign: “Everything’s been cancelled. Everything’s on hold. We just don’t want to discuss politics at a time like this,” Kelly’s campaign spokesman, John Ellinwood, said. But: Attorney Lee Miller, who serves as legal counsel for the Arizona Republican Party, told our reporter Kelly’s […]

As a matter of fact, I’m quoting Raffi, the famous Canadian children’s entertainer.
