Happy Thursday. Of interest:

The RNC cannot force Florida to proportionately award delegates, it can only punish Florida for failing to proportionately award delegates. And the punishment is the same as for holding its primary early.

I talked to my gal at the RNC about this and she told me the same thing. Remember: just as Florida GOP gets to pick its primary date, Florida GOP gets to award its delegates how it likes. That's not something within the RNC's control. The RNC can only punish Florida GOP for not complying with the convention rules. Oh, and to change those rules (like, for instance, to apply a harsher sanction) requires a vote when the whole committee is together at the August convention. So don't count on it.

I guess it's Groundhog Day. Great movie. Stupid day.

Scientists are making great strides with flying robot swarms. Didn't they read that Michael Crichton book?

The family of slain CBP agent Brian Terry will sue the ATF and DOJ. They allege that the then-U.S. attorney in Phoenix lied to them about where the gun that killed Terry came from.

While you were sleeping, the Washington Senate passed a marriage bill 28-21. Four Republicans crossed party lines and voted with the majority. Three Democrats voted against it. The governor says she'll sign when the House passes it. A ballot referendum is planned.
