Today's news is pretty uninspiring. There's the idiotic manufactured outrage over Joe Biden's "chains" comment. There's a mind-numbing number of deep-in-the-weeds posts about Paul Ryan's budget plan and how bad it is. There's the state judge who declined to issue an injunction against Pennsylvania's new voter ID law — not much of a surprise since the Supreme Court ruled years ago that such laws were OK. There's Mitt Romney, once again pretending that even though he's too cowardly to tell us during the presidential campaign what tax loopholes on the rich he wants to close, he'll totally fight to close them once he's elected. Honest.
It's all worth a read. But you might have to take a shower after you're done.
