Happy Thursday.

Lawmakers from both parties are in talks to exempt themselves and their staffs from having to join Obamacare health exchanges. Being forced to use the Obamacare exchanges would lead to a "brain drain" on Capitol Hill, these lawmakers say, because they're too expensive. I believe the first part of any rational response to this proposal has to begin: "Fuck you, you fucking fucks."

Officials say Dzhokhar Tsarnaev confessed before he was informed of his rights. Whether or not those statements are admissible at trial is going to depend on several other factors. Also, the statements would be admissible if Tsarnaev repeated them or expanded upon them after he was Mirandized. No one's really worried about getting a conviction in this case.

Animal rights "activists," accurately referred to as terrorists, ransacked a lab in Italy and set back research for treating autism and other disorders by years. I believe the first part of any rational response to this act has to begin: "Fuck you, you fucking fucks."

Ron and Rand Paul are reportedly pressuring Rep. Justin Amash not to run for the Senate. Apparently, they see a bright future for him in the House. In semi-related news, the Democratic AG of Kentucky, Jack Conway, who lost to Sen. Paul, says he won't run against Sen. McConnell, blames Puffy McPuffyface for the Democrats' trouble finding a candidate to run.

Rhode Island will become the 10th state to legalize gay marriage. Yesterday, the state senate passed such a law, with all of the state's GOP senators voting in favor of it. The law goes back to the House for technical corrections (the House already passed it last month) and then on to the Gov. Lincoln Chafee's desk. If you want to know how the law came about in spite of opposition from the president, majority leader and Judiciary Committee chairman of the state senate -- all of whom could have stopped the bill from proceeding to a vote -- Josh Barro explains.

They just opened a hundred-year time capsule in Oklahoma. Here's photos of what was inside.
