“The State Department is set to release a final environmental analysis of the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline on Friday, according to sources, setting the stage for a months-long endgame in one of the Obama administration’s most intractable environmental controversies.” – POLITICO

What is it about women that causes leading Republicans to grow clumsy, if not stupid? When even savvy, fluent, attractively populist Mike Huckabee stumbles, you know you’ve got trouble. Having already thrown away eminently winnable Senate seats in Missouri and Indiana because of moronic talk about rape, the GOP might have learned. You’d think.” – Charles Krauthammer/National Review

“Drum roll…..the long awaited GOP principles on illegal immigration were presented today to the House GOP Conference at their annual [aptly-named] retreat.  Sorry to disappoint you but there is nothing new under the sun.  Their framework is a mirror image of the Senate ‘Gang of 8’ bill, albeit cloaked in even more deceptive and disingenuous language in order to distract conservatives with shiny objects.” – RedState

“The Church teaches that love, marriage, sex, and procreation are all things that belong together. That’s it. But it’s pretty important. And though the Church has been teaching this for 2,000 years, it’s probably never been as salient as today.” – Business Insider

“Sean Trende of RealClearPolitics started tweeting in total mystification after the statement was released as to why the GOP would be pushing amnesty now, of all moments. If they were dead set on doing this before the midterms, he reasoned, why not do it last year, to give conservative anger more time to cool before the big vote?” – Hot Air

“A California senator is seeking to audit the state’s ObamaCare exchange after a Watchdog.org story revealed that $1.37 million was spent on a campaign featuring an eight-hour web stream starring a gyrating Richard Simmons.” – Fox News

“Sandra Fluke, who became an instant celebrity when she was denied the opportunity to testify at a hearing on Obamacare’s contraception requirements, is ‘strongly considering’ a bid for Rep. Henry Waxman’s congressional seat, according to KPCC, a Southern California radio station.” – POLITICO

“Rolling Stone joined Time (which crowned Francis its Person of the Year for 2013), The Advocate (ditto) and The New York Times in a group self-delusion that the pope is coming around to their views on economics, homosexuality and ordination of women.” – NY Post

Call your congressman today. Ask if he supports John Boehner’s immigration principles. If he says, ‘no,’ thank him for his support and request that he release a statement noting his opposition to Boehner’s immigration principles. If he says, ‘yes,’ POLITELY tell him that you are very upset and that you will not be volunteering or donating to his campaign this year. If you have donated to him already, note that you will not donate again and ask him to return any previous donations.” – Right Wing News

“So here’s my simple — call it simple-minded, if you want — solution, my modest proposal.  Illegal immigrants, assuming they have lived here for a decent period of time and have not committed a felony, can have amnesty, but they can NEVER be allowed to vote.  They can do anything else that is legal, but if they want to vote — or run for office or practice law in our country, as just happened in California — they must return home and go through the normal immigrant application process, however long that may take until they have citizenship.” – Roger L. Simon/PJ Media
