Oh boy, I'll bet the kids just can't wait to burn fake Obamacare cards! It's way better than video games! Greg Dworkin gave us his headline round-up, and previewed his upcoming Sunday Kos piece, "Libertarian populism and the battle for the Perot vote." So, what stories did we discuss today? Sahil Kapur's entry at TPMDC, "GOP Telegraphs Mass Filibuster Of Obama's Top Judges." The AP's report that an opinion of the Arkansas Attorney General will block Clarksville, AR's plan to arm teachers and staff. Norm Ornstein's latest on Gop intransigence, "Boehner's Passive-Aggressive Style Heightens Risk of Government Shutdown." John Aravosis' coverage at Americablog of the craziness of anti-gay sentiment in Russia and how it's coming to impact their hosting of the 2014 Winter Olympics. Catching up on the partially-debunked but still unsettling "pressure cooker & backpack" Googling story. And finally, Henry Blodget's provocatively-titled, "Hate To Say It, But If Companies Don't Start Paying People Better, We May Need Unions."
