Bad news, everybody: there's good news. GDP numbers are strong, and that's bad because our fiscal conservatives who love America know that GDP growth is communist and America is a hellhole. Greg Dworkin, sporting a brand new headset, pointed us to yesterday's APR, which began with a reflection on just how far we've come, economically, and examines public opinion of Obama's foreign policy style. Speaking of which: the Russia-Ukraine thing. It's time for Chris Christie comeback stories. Joan McCarter is also back from hiatus, and we talked about hot new trends in plagiarism, the pre-recess waiting game in Congress, "Paul Ryan's one crazy trick to hurt all the poor," David Sirota's continuing work on Chris Christie's pension fund shenanigans, the controversial decision to bring Netroots Nation to Phoenix, the future rollout of Daily Kos' own regional mini-conferences, the Daily Kos endorsement of Jim Mowrer in his race against the execrable Steve King in IA-04, and the looming world water crisis. Oh, and George Zimmerman isn't working as a security guard at a gun store, after all.
