Scott Walker is Above the Law

  • People who aren’t billionaires experienced a rare “hopeful” sensation (haha, remember that word, “Hope”? Before it was removed from the Oxford English Dictionary and replaced with “OMG”?) last week, after an activist judge legislating from the bench ruled that Scott Walker’s Gilded Age labor bill was total garbage. Scott Walker’s goon squad just cold-ignored this ruling, of course! And now this same hippie judge has made another Koch-block ruling against Wisconsin’s famous collective bargaining plan. Not a problem, though! Wisconsin’s Assistant Attorney General Steven Means still says “the legislation ‘absolutely’ is still in effect.” See? That’s how Democracy works. [TPM]
  • 55 people were murdered and at least 95 injured in Tikrit, Home of Saddam Hussein. (But at least we are freedom-bombing Libya, amiright?) [McClatchy]
  • Meanwhile, in Japan: The president of TEPCO has been hospitalized with a nasty case of “hypertension.” Hypertension has also seeped into Japan’s water supply, soil, and produce. And with a half-life of approximately 25,000 years, this hypertension is here to stay! Hooray. [AP]
