Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, was plainly stupid to allow herself to be out and exposed in the daylight and 1,000 feet from a public road in France, topless.

Wow. This is getting deeper, the anti-Hillary news. And While I’m not anti-Hillary, I’m certainly pro-Barack and am concerned that the Clinton camp’s wrongly attacking Barack Obama , almost portraying him as their enemy.
