- This is awesome:
Texas lawmakers are currently rushing an omnibus anti-abortion bill through a special session, after each of its provisions failed to advance separately during the regular legislative session. But not without being met with a fight. Over 700 Texans traveled to Austin on Thursday to testify against the anti-abortion measure before it could come to a vote in the House — and their “people’s filibuster” successfully prevented the legislation from advancing.
- Yahoo News analyzed how Jay Carney dodges questions. Kind of a crash course for aspiring press secretaries everywhere.
Howard Dean, the former Vermont governor who electrified anti-war liberals during the 2004 presidential race, said Thursday he would consider another run for the White House – a statement that will surely be met with mixed reaction in the Democratic Party.
Dean, whose underdog presidential campaign officially launched 10 years ago this weekend, said he has "mixed feelings" about running for office again but added he would consider another bid for the Democratic presidential nomination if he doesn't think the other candidates are adequately addressing progressive issues that are dear to his heart.

Controversial state Rep. Stella Tremblay, R-Auburn, resigned from the New Hampshire House of Representatives Thursday ... a day after she made another allegation the Boston Marathon bombing might have been a government conspiracy. [...]

- On today's Kagro in the Morning show, Greg Dworkin rounded up news of the farm bill failure, "The Republican War on Data," maneuvering on immigration reform, and Tom Edsall's NYT opinion piece, "Our Broken Social Contract." And that Edsall piece ended up being the basis for most of the rest of the show, so much was there wrapped up in it. Armando called in to join that conversation, plus give us a look at the day's Netroots Nation agenda. And just for kicks at the end, "If We Can't Stop Corporations from Hiding in Cayman Islands to Avoid Taxes, We All Need to Become Pirates." Where have we heard this idea before? Hint: Here!
