Michelle Obama hugs a woman at a celebration

Happy birthday, Michelle Obama.

Just a reminder; Rush Limbaugh is an idiot and a prick.

A hostage rescue attempt by Algeria goes horribly, horribly wrong. Somehow, this is Pres. Obama's fault.

Proving that they're lunatics who'll believe pretty much anything, polling shows that Republicans are still mostly birthers -- by a wide margin.

Somewhat related: Half of House Republicans wanted to vote yes on the fiscal cliff deal, but voted no out of fear they'd be primaried by nutjobs.

Paul Ryan announces the possibility of a Republican mini-cave on the debt limit -- a temporary extension until March. Democrats aren't keen on kicking the can down the road, so this probably won't go anywhere. But it shows that the GOP is spooked and looking for some way out.

RIP "Dear Abby."

It looks like Marco Rubio's PAC is a typical conservative operation -- a scam to separate chumps from their money.

Chris Christie slaps the NRA for their "reprehensible" ad.

Finally, Republicans retreat to a former southern plantation to try to figure out why they can't attract more minority voters. You can't make this shit up.
