* For weeks, House Republicans talked up a major new lawsuit against President Obama, whom they characterized as an out-of-control tyrant. But yesterday, when Speaker Boehner faced a put-up-or-shut-up challenge, he blew it (http://on.msnbc.com/1nkFE12).
* As far as Mitch McConnell is concerned, "most of the barriers" for American women, have been already been "lowered." Maybe this helps explain why he opposed the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, the Violence Against Women Act, and the Paycheck Fairness Act? (http://on.msnbc.com/1reJ6KY)
* A U.S. Senate candidate in Virginia believes working for the minimum wage is awesome: "It's where you learn the social aspect of work, where you play on a softball team or go for a beer after work." Reality tells a very different kind of story (http://on.msnbc.com/1sHiYs8).
* Karl Rove has a new complaint about the president: Obama "makes time for [fundraising] no matter how pressing world or national affairs are." One wonders why Rove didn't have similar concerns when Bush made time for fundraising during comparable crises (http://on.msnbc.com/1qrmfdH).
* Todd Akin is back, he's not sorry, and he wants to re-litigate whether women impregnated during a "legitimate rape" can "shut that whole thing down" (http://on.msnbc.com/1sHmanK).
* Elections shenanigan in Florida? You don't say (http://on.msnbc.com/1sHlsqL).
* If Republicans can't impeach Obama, gosh darn it they're going to have to impeach someone else. Apparently, GOP lawmakers have their eye on Holder (http://on.msnbc.com/1sHkri9).
