Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is a sore loser douche. He's also got some real lousy ideas about higher education. But tellingly, three words not mentioned when Scooter laid out his agenda: "right to work." He's done poking labor with sticks for the time being.

Republicans coming around to reality? Bullshit.

The rightwing blogosphere reports that Paul Krugman's advocating a top tax bracket of 91%. Not surprisingly, that's BS. Show me where he says that. All the wingnuts have managed to do is to demonstrate their rock-bottom reading comprehension skills. And, by the way, Krugman's right.

The GOP's scapegoating campaign against Amb. Susan Rice is rapidly collapsing, so of course 97 House Republicans decide the time is right to pile on.

Rush Limbaugh seems to forget all about that one time he called that nice lady a "slut."

Somewhat related: Clear Channel, which runs Limbaugh on like a billion stations, is struggling to stay afloat after being taken over by Bain Capital in 2008.

Rupert Murdoch manages to run to the defense of Israel and get all antisemitic at the same time.

Ariel Sharon's son Gilad writes an op-ed calling for genocide in Gaza.

Finally, a bankruptcy court judge forces Hostess to go into mediation with the union.
