Conservative Libertarianism in action: house burns down, firefighters stand by and watch.

More on how the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling is turning democracy into a quaint, antiquated formality.

In Sanchez vs. Stewart, Stewart fires back. CNN's already picked the winner, though.

Finally, The Hill reprints Secretary of Education Arne Duncan's comments on a spate of suicides due to anti-gay bullying. Want to know what anti-gay bullying must be like?
