Happy Wednesday.

South Carolina state legislators are proposing to nullify Obamacare by enacting criminal penalties for any state or federal official caught implementing it. This is a stupid, unconstitutional idea, as I wrote almost two years ago when nullification first came up in the context of Obamacare, but I bet you a beer these legislators think they're real smart.

Fact: data shows no connection between violent video games and gun murders.

Benghazi report slams State Department for lack of security. You can see the full report here (PDF).

CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson is still on the trail of Fast and Furious. This time she's reporting that a Fast and Furious gun was found at site of the murder of a Mexican beauty queen.

Treasury is planning to sell its shares in two-thirds of the remaining TARP banks who have yet to pay their loans back.

Planet in the "Goldilocks zone," that is the range of orbits thought to be conducive to life, is in orbit of solar neighbor Tau Ceti.

Poll explains GOP "Let It Burn" faction.

Update: Courtesy of DrewM., the DOD press office is denying the DOD IG's report that Michael Vickers was the UBL raid film leaker.

The denial is, to say the least, unpersuasive. The press release fesses to one meeting between Vickers and the filmmakers and very carefully explains that Vickers didn't pass the name of the spec ops planner for the UBL mission at that meeting. It then further obscures the issue by noting that Vickers offered but ultimately didn't arrange a meeting for the filmmakers with a spec ops planner not associated with the UBL raid. But the release doesn't even try to suggest that Vickers had only one meeting with the filmmakers, nor does it directly deny the IG's conclusion that Vickers passed the name of a spec ops planner to the filmmakers.
