The Morning: March 25, 2011

Does Congress still have to declare a Kinetic Military Action? The Administration can’t stop prevaricating about the Libya.  Because we all want a leader who will drop bombs on someone else and put our troops in harm’s way and not know what to call it.

Unemployed Americans – it’s your turn to get slapped: Michigan and Florida (Tea Party governors) are leading the way to reducing unemployment benefits when 13.7 million people are unemployed.  But really, it’s to protect the unemployed – “This makes sure we have that lifeline still in place,” Snyder spokeswoman Sara Wurfel said. “It was a necessary compromise. The votes to do anything else weren’t there otherwise.”

More rockets and more airstrikes: Someone has to step in, right?

Never trust anyone named Jimmer: Is the six-foot-two BYU star the next Great White Hope for a league that has forever had issues with race?

Scream all you want Buck, your team is still going to finish in 5th place: Maybe 4th.  Orioles Manager Buck Showalter has some fighting words for the Sox and Yankees.
