Rubio flashes the full welder.

dagblog.com — The real tragedy of Rubio's Full Welder Amateur Hour is it's ignorance of what has recently become known about the pathology of the white working class in America. The mortality rate of those with at least a B.A.

Guys, Hillary Clinton Is Going To Be A Great President

dagblog.com — I like Bernie, too. I'm going to vote for him in the New York primary, unless he's out and has endorsed Hillary Clinton by then. Call it my political Pascal's Wager. If I vote for him and he wins, I'll be plenty happy. But I'm also wagering in New York, where Hillary's popularity is intact.

How Trump Models His Campaign After Pro-Wrestling (No, Really)

talkingpointsmemo.com — TPM has already chronicled the long professional relationship, public friendship and in-ring head shaving of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and World Wrestling Entertainment chairman and chief executive Vincent K.
