by Cassy Fiano (Originally published 8-2-2010)

Some things in this political climate are disappointing, some depressing, but this, THIS is absolutely shocking... in the United States of America, right in front of an elected public official. Liberal Portland, Oregon, you should be ashamed.  If you are not, then THAT is shocking as well.
