Jack Welch: People Making Fun Of Me Is Worse Than A Siberian Gulag

What is up with conservatives and the First Amendment?

Sadly, everybody then started asking if had Alzheimer’s like Ronald Reagan or something, because it was truly embarrassing. Now Jack Welch has huffed off from his prestige job spitting out nonsense at Fortune and CNN because they had no choice but to distance themselves from this crazy old man by writing many articles explaining that he was either a blithering idiot or had lost his freaking mind.
