Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is awake and responding sporadically in writing to questions, authorities said. Investigators are asking about other cell members and other unexploded bombs, law enforcement sources told ABC News. [ABC News] IT DIDN’T take traveling to a foreign country for Dzhokar Tsarnaev to be radicalized, though there is evidence that [...]

Two powerful GOP senators are calling on the Obama administration to treat the captured suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings as an “enemy combatant” and deny him counsel even though he is reportedly an American citizen.mmSens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, captured Friday night outside Boston after a tense daylong [...]
To pass Manchin-Toomey, at least five Republicans must back it. Fifty-five senators caucus with the Democrats, but not all are sure bets to embrace the background check legislation. Sens. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Mark Begich (D-Alaska) last week voted against the motion to proceed to the gun control debate. Both are up for reelection next [...]
“I’m not gay. So I’m not going to marry one.” – Senator Saxby Chambliss COME ONE. Come all. Read ‘em all. Politico, however accidentally, has a compilation of homophobic Republican ignorance spewing out of the mouths of a bunch of white men, with an assist from a couple of Democratics, two up for reelection, and [...]
Former Sen. Joe Lieberman is joining the conservative think tank American Enterprise Institute, the organization announced Monday. [Politico] THE MAN who once stood next to Al Gore as the Democratic vice presidential nominee is going where right-wingers go to spend out the rest of their years in irrelevancy. It’s fitting and earned.
Steve Schmidt, the Republican strategist who ran John McCain’s 2008 effort, said Paul could be a formidable 2016 opponent because he is a “conviction” candidate. “I can’t tell you how many hours and meetings are devoted to discussing the candidates vision in a campaign,” said Schmidt. “Well, you wouldn’t have to do that with him.

Benghazi? We’re Still Waiting for Bush and Cheney to be Held Accountable for Iraq. [Rachel Maddow Videos]
Hagel saw that, in Iraq, America was taking on an already weakened leader who the senator said probably didn’t have weapons of mass destruction, and at the same time empowering another regime (Iran) that badly wanted WMDs–a dire development further documented on Monday by The Washington Post, which reported that the Iranian-backed Shiite group Asaib [...]
The Daily Show with Jon StewartGet More: Daily Show Full Episodes,Political Humor & Satire Blog,The Daily Show on Facebook THIS IS the most deserved evisceration of a politician in a long time, with no one asking for it more than Senator John McCain.
The results are transformational. With more technology, and fewer resources at many media companies, the balance of power between the White House and press has tipped unmistakably toward the government. This is an arguably dangerous development, and one that the Obama White House — fluent in digital media and no fan of the mainstream press [...]
All of this is doubly concerning since the report from Rutgers. Contemporaneous notes recorded his words, and now Hagel can’t say definitively that he didn’t say them. Meanwhile, after a slumber, two major liberal Jewish organizations, the Anti-Discrimination League and the American Jewish Committee, have perked up. Gosh, if true, this is really bad stuff, [...]

Love it that Jon Stewart also calls out Senator John McCain’s convenient immigration flip flopping.
HAGEL NOMINATION ADVANCES Passed along party lines by 14-11 in committee Across nine issues, Americans give Obama his highest approval ratings for handling national defense (53%), followed by foreign affairs and immigration, each at 46%. [Gallup] SENATORS McCAIN, Lindsey Graham, Kelly Ayotte, James Inhofe and others have done their best to ruin the reputation of [...]
“The forces were moving… … There was no time or space available to be able to respond in time.” – Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta [C-SPAN - See video below] CONSERVATIVES STUBBORNLY refuse to accept and understand just how quickly the Benghazi, Libya 9/11 terrorist attack engulfed the consulate and also that the Obama administration, [...]
IT’S A question that should be answered, since the Senate Armed Services Committee is deciding to hold Chuck Hagel to standards senators can’t meet themselves. The confirmation delay of Chuck Hagel is on precarious footing, because of the double standard the Committee has decided to impose on Hagel. It’s bad enough that the so-called “sexual [...]
“One can’t doubt that the American objective in Iraq has failed. .. Our mission has failed…” – William F. Buckley “You’re on the wrong side of it, and your refusal to answer whether you were right or wrong on it is going to have an impact on my judgment on whether to vote for your [...]
