"This Thing is Working"
It's starting to look like the GOP won't be able to use the phrase "repeal Obamacare" in their campaign speeches much longer.

Pouring Gas on the Fire
I think the federal government has been exceedingly patient regarding the Bundy ranch situation. And I also think it's disgusting how Hannity and others are trying to make the rancher out to be some kind of folk hero.

You Done Good, Boys
Congrats to Hall and Oates for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Now they just need to make the call to Todd Rundgren.
