Riding the Amtrak from NY to DC, I’m genuinely stunned how sh*tty most cities along route look from train station.
Except Wilmington, DE. That actually looks nice from the train.
But so many of the others… crappy, decrepit… I mean, I understand that the real estate right by the train track might not be the most prime, but… seriously, cities, this is the first impression people have of you when they arrive, or just pass by. At least TRY not to look shitty.
I can’t believe that some half-wits are STILL complaining about this.
All I can say is…
The good news is Michele Bachmann is not running again in 2014. The bad news is, she’ll still be a member of the critical House Intelligence Committee until 2015.
Members of the House Intelligence Committee are entrusted with classified information that affects the safety and security of all Americans. That information should not be in the hands of anyone with such a fondness for conspiracy theories, McCarthyist tactics, and utter dishonesty.
Tell Boehner to remove her now. America can’t wait.
If members of the Congress refuse to change the laws to reduce gun violence, then we need to change the members of Congress. That’s why Gabby and Mark are asking you to join them in supporting candidates who back commonsense gun violence legislation, and withholding your support from those who don’t.
Sign your name, send a message to Congress, and pledge to vote against gun violence in 2014
I am VERY proud of my buddy Rick Polito, who is burning up the Kindle-sphere with his new book, “Dark Shift.”
Rick is the genius behind the single best TV review in history (as seen on Jay Leno). Writing of the Wizard of Oz, he penned:
Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first person she meets. Then she teams up with three strangers to kill again
His new book, Dark Shift, has been described as ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Mad Max at The Breakfast Club.” (which may in fact be the best book review in history)

Oklahoma has been devastated by a major tornado, and it’s up to all of us to help. Sadly, however, some in Congress are already threatening to use Federal disaster aid as a political weapon:
Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) said just hours after a major tornado ravaged his state that he would use the federal relief funds as a cudgel to force Democrats into accepting more spending cuts to programs like Social Security and Medicare… CQ’s public-facing side reported on the comments later that night, saying Coburn will “absolutely” demand spending cuts to offset his state’s need for federal aid after Monday’s devastating tornadoes.

This is not the time for partisan games. This is not the time to score political points.
This is the time for all Americans to come together, and help the people of Oklahoma.
Tell Congress: Don’t Hold Oklahoma Emergency Aid Hostage
