Sarita Palinista is not in (and won't be) but she continues her celebrity events when she feels like it. Josh Green at the Atlantic points out that her popularity could take a severe blow when she does announce that she is not running.

Cain is only newsworthy for playing the "race" card against Jon Stewart, of all people.

And locally, more and more tea party types, including King Kirkham, are turning against Sen. Hatch to the benefit of Jason Chaffetz (or
And in the White House, the President is moving from Eisenhower back to Truman taking civilian control of the military and givin' Congress He--!!
Oh, and this just in. The Sixth Circuit Federal Court of Appeals upholds the ACA's health insurance mandate. Remember, if there is no conflict among the Circuits, the Supreme Court will likely have nothing to hear.
