Tip: You should always be careful when drafting headlines. You should be especially careful when the story involves the loss of human life and you’re Facebook messaging in another window.

+ Via CNN Political Ticker: DNC Committee Member, Wayne State Board of Governor’s member, advocate for women’s and workers’ rights, and Southeast Michigan fashion icon Debbie Dingell is considering a bid for Carl Levin’s vacated senate seat.

+ Via Salon: Rand Paul is like Mr. Smith for progressive frat boys. Think about that, Seth, think about that. (That being said, I think my “type” is bro-gressive, so this article is sort of enlightening. Sort of.)

+ Via Wonkblog: I’ll miss Hilda Solis, but this Tom Perez guy has a pretty impressive resume.

+ Via The Fix: The average senate candidate needs to raise $14,000 per day. Mind boggled.


“No man has the right to tell me what I am going to do with my body. What you’ve seen in the legislature — women not being allowed to say words that men say all the time; having men try to tell women what they can do with their bodies; what kind of access to healthcare they are going to have — is quite frankly unacceptable.”
