If there is one thing that is wrong with Republicans, besides the fact that they are lying opportunistic racist cowards , it’s that they have too many Ben’s. In comments earlier today it was pointed out that The Virgin Benâ„¢ had appeared on MSNBC; but as you can see from the screenshot above, it was a different Virgin Ben (possibly v2.0).
