  • John Bolton gets standing ovation for saying he is thinking about running for president in 2016: The comment was made at a Los Angeles Republican fundraiser Tuesday. The former U.N. ambassador and superhawk  also had a interview with conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt:
    Mr. Hewitt, who attended the L.A. fundraising dinner for Mr. Bolton later that night, makes two predictions on the Bolton front: Mr. Bolton will run, and at the least, he will play the provocateur’s role that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich did in 2012.

    “He will make the others on the stage squirm, just like Newt did,” Mr. Hewitt said.

    Just looking at him is enough to make some of us squirm.

    “I could’ve decided to go on the elected leadership route years ago,” Ryan said during a luncheon sponsored by local chambers of commerce and the nonprofit news outlet the Texas Tribune. “I’m more of a policy person. I prefer spending my days on policy and my weekends at home with my family."

  • Censuring John McCain?
    Some [Arizona] Republicans want the state GOP to buck U.S. Sen. John McCain from his bipartisan saddle and censure him for what they call his “long and terrible record of drafting, co-sponsoring and voting for legislation best associated with liberal Democrats.”

    GOP activists plan to try to introduce a resolution censuring McCain during Saturday’s annual state party meeting in Tempe.

  • On today's Kagro in the Morning show, Mike Huckabee says women must control their libidos, and Dick Black says men can't, because "nighties." Greg Dworkin rounds up the Christie news, Ryan Cooper's "The tea party and the structure of American government," Beinert on Rand Paul, and two from Sarah Kliff tracking ACA news. We gave in to more Richard Sherman stories, again comparing his bravado to that of, say, "successful" businessmen and tech bros. Very Serious News interview interrupted for a Bieber update! "Take your tech start-up gospel and shove it." And "When companies break the law and people pay: The scary lesson of the Google Bus."

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.
