Taken in by the TPM headline: "Maureen McDonnell A 'Nut Bag," we catch up a little bit on the McDonnell corruption trial. An... interesting Twitter exchange over whether DC is (or ever was) "cool." An Ohio man is shot & killed by police for waving a rifle at customers inside a WalMart. Was he an open carry protestor? Nope. His family says it was a toy gun he probably picked up off the store's own shelves. Good news: Servers at these MN restaurants are getting a raise! Bad news: the restaurant is charging them the 2% credit card transaction fee on their tips! VA-10 Gop nominee Barbara Comstock was a lobbyist for the Kochs. And Blackwater. Give a monkey enough time with a camera & he'll take a selfie. And challenge the foundations of copyright jurisprudence. And Rolling Stone says everything Republicans believe is wrong.
