- Today's comic by Tom Tomorrow is New and improved!
- What you missed on Sunday Kos ...
- The real lessons of Robin Kelly's victory, over her opponents and the NRA, by David Nir
- Abortion is just like the Holocaust, says death penalty lover, because he's a schmuck, by Kaili Joy Gray
- Gun violence: An interview with the founder of United Physicians of Newtown, by Greg Dworkin

- In case you missed it, another reaction to Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's appalling description of a portion of the Voting Rights Act as a "perpetuation of racial entitlement," this one from Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC):
"I'm not easily surprised by anything, but that took me to a place I haven't been in a long time," Clyburn said of Scalia's comments, during an interview with HuffPost. "What Justice Scalia said, to me, was, 'The 15th Amendment of the Constitution ain't got no concerns for me because I'm white and proud.'"
- Who knew?
"You would be giving off more CO2 if you are riding a bike than driving in a car."
-- Washington state Rep. Ed Orcutt (R), in an interview with the Seattle Bike Blog about an email he sent to a constituent.
- Criticism from Geraldo Rivera? I'd take it as a compliment:
- From Gallup:
Asian-Americans -- who were a key part, if sometimes overlooked, of President Barack Obama's 2012 electoral coalition -- solidly back the Democratic Party, with 57% identifying as or leaning Democratic, compared with 28% identifying as or leaning Republican. Thirteen percent are "pure" independents.
- From the shit-you-can't-make-up files:
Marion Webster, a 78-year-old U.K. woman found guilty of tearing up flowers in her neighbor's garden, may have done it because she believed her own garden had been destroyed by a trained squirrel. [...]The squirrel refused to comment for this story.
"She is very proud of her garden," one neighbor said, according to the Daily Mail, "and she got it into her head that someone had it in for her and was jealous of her flowers ... she became convinced a resident had trained a squirrel to enter her garden after dark and tear up her flowers."
- Possibly the greatest buzzer-beater of all time:
- On today's Kagro in the Morning show Greg Dworkin joined us with news of the punditry's discovery that Rs aren't particularly serious about governing. It's all still somehow Obama's fault, for failing to lead the un-leadable. Next, thanks to twigg, for the shout-out diary over the weekend! Then, a read through a NYT piece on record corporate profits that somehow don't lead to job growth. Gee whiz! Why aren't things trickling down? Also, a musical interlude from The Union Electric, the band of Daily Kos' own dissonentdissident. Finally, the outrageous Malaysian payoff scandal!
