I’m going to be kind of tied up the rest of the day, so here are some things to discuss amongst yourselves:
- Boehner splits with Palin on call for Obama impeachment — You know, things have come to a pretty bad point when all you have to do to look like a statesman is not want to impeach the president.
- Germans Order Expulsion of Top U.S. Spy in Espionage Case — So much for that big World Cup win putting the Germans in a good mood so that they forget about this.
- Iraq insurgents seize nuclear material — First, AP tells us they’ve found chemical weapons in Iraq (“Iraq says Islamic State militants have control of facility holding 2,500 rockets filled with chemical weapons“, then backtracks (“CORRECTION: Iraq: Facility held by extremists holds remnants of degraded chemical rockets (not active weapons)“). Now this. Listen, folks, it doesn’t do us any good to find the WMD now…
- The girl who has everything — I noticed that Haley ex-Chief of Staff Tim Pearson is rather exercised at The State for having referred to the governor as a “girl.” Or rather, he’s upset with the Post and Courier for not standing up for the governor, since they got so worked up about the “little girl” thing a while back. Below you see the headline as it appeared in the paper; it appeared as “woman” online. Thoughts?
