The morning's Twitter chatter: Axelrod's book says Obama wasn't forthcoming with his personal views on marriage equality. Conservatives once again can't help invoking rape. Greg Dworkin finds some chatter of his own, thanks to Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Brian Williams. Old school journo grouses about Vox. Is Walker too extreme for the Gop? How one word could save Obamacare. Nobody wants King to succeed. Running against Obamacare where it's working. This morning's measles news roundup. Armando weighs in on the latest King case stories, and we discuss how & why compromises like state exchanges and smaller stimulus bills happened in the first place, including some juicy rules esoterica! Later, King gets even stranger, with a WSJ piece questioning the basic stories & standing of each of the named plaintiffs. Still more about how the case is collapsing, from The Week. Evan Bayh's DC house is for sale. And it's Joni Ernst's turn to explain/lose (I guess) the "combat veteran" argument.
