Wouldn't a duplex be more sensible?

Washingtonian magazine is rather distressed that Barack Obama intends to live in a really spendy DC neighborhood after he's out of office. Shouldn't a former community organizer have to live in a tenement?
Could we borrow a little of that Ebola panic?

Republicans, who freaked out mightily over Ebola a couple years ago, are taking a far more laid-back approach to funding preparations for the Zika virus. We can't imagine why.

Washington State's primary Monday had two winners; Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Only one of them actually won any delegates, because Washington does things strangely.
It's the House Finch of Proportional Representation!

Bernie Sanders is asking for a recanvass of last week's Kentucky primary, which seems like a good idea. Do birds count?
You can tell he's a thug from a shady neighborhood.

A Virginia middle-schooler was charged with larceny and suspended from school after a cop accused him of 'stealing' a 65-cent carton of milk that he was entitled to have as part of his free school lunch. Franz Kafka would be proud.
Yes, Virginia, there IS an ethics probe

Yes, Virginia, there IS a federal investigation. But we have no idea what exactly is being investigated. It's Terry McAuliffe, there's always something.

America's top moral scold, Bill O'Reilly, is suing his ex-wife for $10 million, claiming she fraudulently misled the poor heartbroken teevee shouter into signing a separation agreement while she was boinking someone that was...

He's a very talented guy; he'll be able to pull it off.

With James O'Keefe's botched attempt to infiltrate George Soros's Open Society Foundations, we learn (again) just what a shoddy amateur spy he is.
Yes, yes, the nice socialist speaks German too, please save your angry emails...

Austria narrowly avoided electing a far right candidate who loves flirting with the language and symbolism of Naziism. Breitbart News choked back a sob.
Libertarians have wings! (Unicorn horn sold separately)

Take a look at this awesome InfoWars experimental film masquerading as a political ad for Libertarian presidential candidate John McAffee. Language is a virus from outer space!
Also, Dude, don't read the Breitbart comments

President Obama signed a bill Friday updating federal law to eliminate obsolete racial terms like 'negro' and 'Oriental' from federal law. Rightwing reaction was as measured and thoughtful as you'd expect.
What's Pony Hillary drinking? A Bloody Mare-y, of course.

We got a whole lot of angry comments about Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, and we have no idea why. OK, maybe some idea why.
You have to admit it's a nice hat

Our weekly tour of the 2016 Senate races visits Georgia, where a political novice is running a longshot campaign to unseat a two-term Republican incumbent. Needless to say, it's a bit messier than that.

Wonkette is strangely in love with this tough-talking but oddly compassionate Louisiana cop. We're not sure he's really cut out to serve in Congress, but that's never stopped any candidate before.
It was seersucker/candystriper day in the Senate
