  • Today's comic is Call of doodie by Matt Bors:
    Comic - Call of doodie
  • Now that Congress has solved all of our other problems:
    The heads of the House Oversight Committee are planning to grill professional football players directly in their probe of human growth hormone use in the National Football League.
  • Do not fuck with Ann Friedman.
  • Sen. Ron Johnson says America is pretty much Atlas Shrugged now, which shows that he, like most wingnuts who like to invoke The Lord God Ayn Rand, has definitely never read the book:
    In an interview with the Rand-inspired Atlas Society, Johnson said he "absolutely" sees parallels between the American economy today and the novel in which government regulations drive prominent businessmen to retreat into a secluded gulch in protest.
    Johnson also claims he's just like Hank Rearden, and since we know he didn't invent some awesome new metal, I guess that means he's cheating on his wife. Or something.
  • Oh no! How will life ever be the same?
    CNN contributors and political power couple James Carville and Mary Matalin are leaving the network, Carville told POLITICO today. [...]

    News of Carville and Matalin's departure first surfaced in a report from FishbowlDC, which also noted that conservative contributor Erick Erickson would be moving to Fox News, which POLITICO has confirmed.

  • Fox "News" bobbleheads still think there's some sort of nefarious HILLARYBENGHAZI60MINUTESSOMETHING conspiracy about ... something.
  • And speaking of Benghazi conspiracy theories:
    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is sticking with his belief that the Obama administration is covering up a vast conspiracy of arms smuggling out of Benghazi, Libya to jihadi rebels in Syria, despite a lack of evidence.
  • Is the The New Republic purging its Jews? Batshit crazy conspiracy theorists are on it!
  • This happened:
    Seattle police worked with Army officials Monday to track down the history of a nonfunctional missile launcher that showed up at a weapons buyback program and determine whether it was legal or possibly stolen from the military.
  • On today's Kagro in the Morning show, Greg Dworkin joined us to talk about the Republican efforts to become the non-stupid party, and how they're faring. David Brooks thinks they're doing a lousy job, but he'll fix it by complaining. We also caught up with the latest crazy gun stories, the remaining possibilities for Senate rules reform, and even some old but still surprising news about which presidents were responsible for the biggest and smallest rates of growth in government spending. It's a shocker for people who hate Obama and love Reagan. Know anyone like that?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
