Ted Rall and Donna Barstow: Separated at Birth?
Ted Rall is a liberal who hates most things President Obama has done this year.

So we’re kind of going in opposite directions, but I enjoyed pointing out to him recently on ...

Geez, this health plan has even me upset and feeling bi-partisan – and I live alone! I mean, I HATE my HMO (Kaiser) who screws everyone, lies, is incompetent, greedy, and unethical.
