NFL Draft Round 1

The round in review. Still amazed Tebow went and Clausen didn't.

As Seen on TV

Citizens United Response

Democrats introduce a bill to cut back on Citizens United.

Better than Nothing?

Bad financial reform is not better than no reform at all. Haven't we seen this before? Democrats put out a "good" idea. It gets picked apart and all good portions are taken out. Then Democrats get angry and try to pass the bill and everyone says well now it's a bad bill. Why not just pass the original?

The Cheney Curse

Apparently his not so nice words to Patrick Leahy were a crowning achievement of his time as Vice President.

NFL Mock Draft

The final final final NFL Mock Draft: 1. STL- Bradford 2. DET- Suh 3. TB- McCoy 4. WAS- T. Williams 5. KC- Okung 6. SEA- Bulaga 7. CLE- Berry 8. OAK- Pierre-Paul 9. BUF- D. Williams 10. JAX- McClain

No real surprises in the top 7; we'll see if that holds true tonight because that'd be pretty boring. The real intriguing storyline will probably be how far Clausen and Tebow fall.

Beating Obesity

10 ideas to solve the problem.

Not a Hypocrite?

Are there material differences between "Romneycare" and "Obamacare"? Mitt Romney sure hopes so.

Abortion Gap

Young voters that oppose it care much more about it than those that support it. Bad news for abortion rights advocates.

Goldman Hacks

Inside the scummy deal that amazingly contained a lot of legal but horribly unethical activity.

The Best/Worst of Protest Signs

Attending a protest with a sign, the most American of activities.

Presidential Tweets

What if Twitter existed when Lincoln was president?

Don't Eat, Don't Drink

School lunches are making kids too fat to fight in the military.

Low Fat!

Misleading food labels with phrases like "all natural".

Anthrax Squad

Hold the Salt

Sarah Palin and the Tea Party

Little does she know her anti-Obama rhetoric is flying in the face of the original Tea Party.

Slow Not Racist

Jonah Goldberg says the Tea Party isn't racist, just slow to react to George W Bush. While perhaps this has some truth, it always surprises me that people will deny there is any racism when there is photo evidence of clearly racist signs. You'd think they'd just say those are a few bad apples instead of completely denying their existence.

Wall Street Casino

Wall Street has strayed from its original purpose.
