Happy Hump Day, readers! Let’s get right down to it…this week already feels like it is just swirling around the toilet bowl, eh?
- Greek PM Samaras says “he needs more time.” I think the EU leaders gave him enough time to get his country out of ruin, so…no.
- East Germany still has a Nazi problem. Yep, that’s what the whole world wants to hear and think about again…
- The Washington Monument did not sink any further into the ground following last year’s 5.8 quake in D.C. Thank goodness.
- Mitt Romney to Donors: I would explain my energy plan, but reporters are present. Oh for goodness sakes, this is why the news is relegated to reporting about dogs on car roofs and tax returns. Just stop it. Be the adult.
- VP Biden to be in Tampa during RNC Convention. Hehehehe…Plus, the GOP can respond ten-fold during the Charlotte Convention.
- Alaska’s Democrat registration is in steep decline. Does not bode well for 2014, Mark Begich…
- Matt Welch: ‘Condi Rice is the “wrong kin” for Augusta.’ That’s some racist bullsh*t. It only counts if they share your political views, right?
Akin Watch: Day 2
- Cook Political Report moves MO Senate Race from “Tossup” to “Lean Democrat.” Yeesh
- Sarah Palin (henceforth known as “The Boss” in this blog) called on MO Republicans to start working on a write-in candidate in order to defeat McCaskill. Akin can still remove himself (through courts) by September 25th, so there’s a chance. MO has a “sore loser” law, meaning defeated candidates cannot run on another party in the General. So Steelman and Brunner cannot be run as write-ins, paving the way for one of the many qualified men and women to take his place. My favorite scenario: bait-and-switch, putting Ann Wagner on the Senate ticket and Akin back on his Congressional ticket. Wagner is an accomplished fundraiser with a sterling resume.
- Eleven reasons Todd Akin didn’t quit.
Presidential/Electoral College update coming later today! Some changes in the works.
