"Republicans Live in an Alternative Reality" [VIDEO]

They're seemingly proud of their leaders' corruption, proud of their judicial system double standards, the list goes on and on. While the far right rejoices over this commutation of Libby's sentence, those of us who know better, will know this is their national undoing.
