Happy Monday.

The Romney-Ryan campaign had a statement last night on Rep. Akin's idiotic rape comment: "Governor Romney and Congressman Ryan disagree with Mr. Akin's statement, and a Romney-Ryan administration would not oppose abortion in instances of rape." Ugh.

Politico's Glenn Thrush has a report and a new ebook out on the flailing Obama campaign's personal rivalries. The ebook also has some interesting details on Obama's personal issues; for example, Obama was reluctant to play golf with Speaker Boehner, because he knew Boehner would beat him. Obama also told a Rubio supporter in Florida that Rubio should "watch it" because "he might get his ass kicked."

Yesterday in Pakistan: three drone strikes in 24 hours. The third strike was aimed at militants cleaning up after the first two.

More ugh. King of the Clowns Donald Trump will have a convention role. Everyone's mum about what he's doing, but here's the word: he won't be a speaker; instead he's doing some retarded skit about "firing" an Obama look-alike.
