Greg Dworkin rounded up these stories: the POW swap, new Obama job approval and issues numbers, political fallout from new EPA regs, more health insurance providers want in, but new Medicaid signups aren't moving fast enough, political leaning of doctors by specialty & income, with Christie now toast, Sandy money is flowing again, the blog-to-big-media pipeline of Tapped, and the gun nut civil war. The story of Scott Brown's super-shady corporate "job" was so ludicrous, Armando couldn't resist calling in to help make fun of it. Speaking of scams, conservative publishers throw a party for the latest impeachment-themed book. The signing statement issue is resurrected in the POW swap "debate."
