Pretty much every possible decision SCOTUS could hand down on the Affordable Care Act. Also: many of the people who benefit most from Obamacare don’t even know it.
GOP responses to Pres. Obama’s new immigration policy are as nonsensical as they are self-serving. For instance, they claim Obama jumped the gun because they were going to do something — despite the fact that they obviously weren’t.
GOP Senate candidate Eric Hovde is just as big of a jackass as we’ve come to expect Wisconsin Republicans to be.
Were you one of the rightwing nutjobs who donated to George Zimmerman’s legal defense fund? If so, you are once again proven to be a chump.

Finally, Michigan gynophobes seem to be sparking a movement — just not the one they’d hoped for.
A girl who talked on the phone with Trayvon Martin on the night of Feb. 26 has told a state prosecutor that she heard rising fear in Mr. Martin’s voice that peaked with words like “get off, get off,” right before she lost contact with him and he was shot to death.
In the sworn interview recorded on April 2, which runs more than 22 minutes, the unidentified 16-year-old said Mr. Martin described a man who was “crazy and creepy” and on the phone, watching him from a vehicle before he started to follow him on foot.
The girl implored Mr. Martin, 17, who said he put his sweatshirt hood up because of the rain, to run to the town house where he was staying with his father, his father’s girlfriend and her 14-year-old son.
“I could hear the wind blowing” and “he said he lost him,” said the girl, who is from Miami and who said she had known Mr. Martin since kindergarten. She has not been identified because she is a minor and a witness in the case.
“He was breathing hard,” she said, and “his voice kind of changed. I know he was scared. His voice was getting kind of low.”
The recording is one of several dozen released by State Attorney Angela B. Corey, who has charged the gunman, George Zimmerman, 28, with second-degree murder. It is part of the discovery material made public this week that also includes hundreds of pages of documents and photographs. Mr. Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty.
I could very easily see how Martin, fully within his rights to walk back to his father’s home, could judge a strange man following him to be possessed of ill-intent.
What always shook me about this case, was not the belief that Zimmerman ruthlessly slaughtered a 17-year old child, but the act of putting myself in that child’s place, and seeing how I just as easily have ended making a decision to defend myself.
