All this whining about Ted Cruz is getting on my nerves.  They’re upset that he’s criticizing Republican leaders like Mitch McConnell, instead of rallying to the Republican establishment banner in all the primaries, the better, they seem to think, to take over the Senate after the November elections.  ‘Fight Obama, not the Republican leadership.’” – Michael Ledeen/PJ Media

“Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer announced Wednesday that she has vetoed SB 1062, the controversial bill that has been criticized as discriminatory towards gays and lesbians, saying the measure, ‘has the potential to create more problems than it purports to solve.’” – POLITICO

Cory Gardner of Colorado’s 4th Congressional District would not seek reelection for his House seat and would instead enter the U.S. Senate race to challenge Mark Udall in November.

Welcome to DeBlasio’s New York. Pretty much the same as Bloomberg’s New York, though hitting people in the Mimosas may be even more painful than the Coke and donuts. For those unacquainted with the brunching habits of the urban East Coaster, those in their late 20s and early 30s—young enough that they’re still partying late enough to need to sleep in but old enough to drop a bit on a decent breakfast—gather in large groups at charming neighborhood establishments for breakfast classics and ever-more-intricate ways to serve bacon accompanied by America’s two approved breakfast cocktails: Bloody Marys and Mimosas. The competition is stiff, both for patrons and restaurants.

“Were he alive today, Richard Nixon would have to doff his hat to Barack Obama. Compared with how the Obama administration has swept under the rug the Benghazi attacks of September 11, 2012, Nixon’s attempt to cover up the Watergate burglary was rank amateurism.
