Suspended tenured Marquette University professor sues Marquette University over freedom of speech. Yeah, you know the polite and politically incorrect kind not the barnyard guttural shriek of one Fatty McFatt from UMass. [Mis. Hum.]
An Arkansas candidate running for John Boozman's Senate seat, has released a new ad, and it's all about Trump. This is just a taste of what we can expect in a general against Hillary. - NDH
One of the most incredible things I've ever seen in a campaign. Ted Cruz speaks directly with Trump supporters in Indiana. His ability to remain on point and, above all, respectful, in the face of such utter ignorance and disrespect, is almost inconceivable. Cruz is the grownup in the room. - NDH
Rubio is a Politician. Nothing More. Look, this isn't surprising. The depth of hatred for Cruz is unparalleled, as he is a threat to the most important constituents politicians have: The dollars in their bank accounts. [krak/t]

After decades of treating the ... bay as a receptacle for industrial waste, the government is moving container traffic to...
Presto-change-O, communist environmental disaster is now communist paradise. [krak/t]
CERN on cusp of discovering New Particle? Would sort of devalue the Standard Model, it's only visible to those watching a single network, and it's 4 times larger than the Top Quark, so scientists are dubbing this the "Lena Dunham" particle. I made up some of that in the name of science. [krak/t]

Everything You Know About Ty Cobb Is Wrong.
No more damaging accusation exists in modern America than that of bigotry. Once levied, it is a charge reluctantly retracted, and the dead have a particularly hard time winning acquittal.

David French: Media Must Not Whitewash Anti-Trump Violence
But why would they break a sixty year tradition of covering up for their violent allies of the left?
John Kasich: My Wife Told Me I Should Continue Embarrassing Myself and Ruining America, Like I Always Have
