By Frank MoraesAs you may recall, yesterday, I wrote about John Boehner's experience signing up for Obamacare, GOP Silence on Good Obamacare News. My focus was on the fact that when bad news comes out about Obamacare (Or just news that seems like it is bad news), the conservative press is all over it. Show More Summary
By Mustang BobbyI have to admit that I’ve never seen Fox and Friends other than the occasional clip that pops up on a site to illustrate just how incredibly gob-smacking that crew can be. Apparently Steve Doocyis the driver of this particular clown car, and he’s echoing the sentiment of Sen. Show More Summary

By Richard K. Barry This is one of my favourite Fleetwood Mac songs. "Never Going Back Again" was the third track on the first side of the legendary Rumours album, which was released in 1977. Maybe I like it so much because Lindsey Buckingham's guitar part is such a blast to play. I have no idea about the origins of this clip, but it's clearly more recent. Love it.

By Richard K. Barry News out of Minnesota is that some poor sap by the name of Stewart Mills, who is the likely GOP nominee to run against Democratic incumbent Rep. Rick Nolan, knows how to party, and there are pictures to prove it. Apparently, the source of the photos of Mills doing a beer bong is his wife's Facebook page. Show More Summary
