4. Todd Akin returns just in time to legitimately rape the GOP’s 2014 election prospects.


5. Science finally proves what we’ve always hoped was true -- that conservatives are biologically different.  Too bad they don’t believe in science.

7. Apparently Silicon Valley technology is now in the business of manufacturing voters to sign the 6 Californias petition.


8. Also, SINKHOLES.  So, like, that.
