- McCain the "liberal" doesn't pass Arizona GOP's purity test:
The Arizona Republican Party formally censured Sen. John McCain on Saturday, citing a voting record they say is insufficiently conservative. [...]
According to the resolution, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee has campaigned as a conservative but has lent his support to issues "associated with liberal Democrats," such as immigration reform and to funding the law sometimes known as Obamacare.
- Corruption trial of ex-New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin began Monday:
Closed courtrooms. No laptops, phones or Wi-Fi. Bathrooms closed off by marshals.
The corruption trial of former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin cranks up Monday with a federal judge imposing tough rules on spectators and reporters during jury selection. In an order issued last week, U.S. District Judge Helen Berrigan imposed those restrictions because of concerns that courtroom rules "may not be respected" by some unnamed miscreants. [...]
Prosecutors accused him of being at the center of "a bribery and kickback scheme" in which he allegedly received checks, cash, wire transfers, personal services and free travel from businessmen seeking contracts and favorable treatment from the city.

- Iowa GOP nopologizes for posting racism flowchart on its Facebook page:
The flowchart instructed the reader to determine racism as whether the person saying it is white and whether you like him. It includes the note, “If you think this flowchart isn’t funny, then this flowchart is racist.”
According to the Daily Beast, the Iowa GOP quickly removed its posting from Facebook that night, and in its place now is an apology from Chairman A.J. Spiker. “Earlier tonight, a contractor of the Iowa GOP made a post referencing a discussion on race that the GOP believes was in bad taste and inappropriate,” it says. “We apologize to those whom were offended, have removed the post and are ensuring it does not happen again.”
- Future of war could be swarms of 3D-printed drone swarms:
The idea, which [Ben FitzGerald, a Senior Fellow at the D.C. defense think-tank Center for a New American Security] outlines in “Process Over Platforms A Paradigm Shift in Acquisition Through Advanced Manufacturing,” breaks down like this: instead of building large, expensive manned aircraft in tiny numbers (the military purchased just 187 F-22s, for $174.5 million a pop) the military could—in theory—build thousands of customized drones out of 3-D printed parts, using robotic assembly lines that run 24 hours a day. Then, writes FitzGerald and his co-author, Dr. Aaron Martin, Director of Strategic Planning at Northrop Grumman (which lost the contract for the F-22 to Lockheed in 1991), the military could deploy the 3-D printed drones in complex, infinitely configurable and no doubt terrifying swarms controlled by “digital pilots.”
- Gif of the year.
On today's Kagro in the Morning show, Twitter says the news is that Trey Radel is resigning because cocaine. Greg Dworkin says it's the latest ACA polling. SOTU tomorrow, so today's the day to find out why Cathy McMorris Rogers will say it sucked, and why they picked her to do it. The War on Women is over, which
Daily CallerFree Beacon marks with its "smokes" tag. The military's got a bit of a libido problem, too. A rich guy complains that everyone else's complaints are Kristallnacht. In privatization news, more on the Google Bus and Uber stories, and another news outfit is thinking about compiling a concealed weapon permit database.
