No more Sarah Palin on Fox News? Sean Hannity suddenly willing to talk about immigration reform? Marco Rubio defending compromise? Maybe there's hope for this country yet.

My favorite part of this article is when the author talks about a gun industry supported magazine called Junior Shooters. It once ran an ad that featured a smiling 15-year-old girl clutching a semiautomatic rifle and the punchline was “Who knows? Maybe you’ll find a Bushmaster AR-15 under your tree some frosty Christmas morning!”

Bobby Jindal is trying to portray himself as the guy who can transform the GOP into a political party minorities and white moderates will want to join. Too bad his rhetoric is so disconnected from his actions.
I'm starting the year off with a couple of really solid new albums. The first one is "Mirage Rock" by the group Band of Horses. I've liked a few of theirs songs in the past but this time around every cut makes the grade in my opinion. It's great country rock with just enough surprises here and there to keep you guessing. Great stuff.

Republicans in New Mexico are trying hard to win the 2013 War On Women award.
When I watch the cable news shows on MSNBC, Fox, CNBC and CNN I see a parade of Republicans talking about how their party is making a huge effort to reach out to minorities and other groups. Boy, they learned their lesson last November. But then I see articles like this one and realize how much the GOP hasn't changed a bit.

Here's a handy guide to nearly all the conspiracy theories that have been peddled about the president. Bet you didn't know he's been on the moon...
Paul Krugman weighs in on what the president has accomplished so far, what goals he's failed to achieve and what lies ahead for the country during the next four years.

Hey, NRA and GOP...can I give you a little advice? If you don't want to drive away moderates (especially women) you should refrain from running ads that talk about the president's children. Even Chris Christie is pissed.

Sometimes I think the most appropriate punishment for non-stop liars like Lance Armstrong would be having to spend a year totally alone somewhere. You know, a place where they could only talk to themselves.

Interesting to see what different states are doing on the gun control issue. It will also be interesting to see how much the effort intensifies after the next mass shooting. Or the first episode where a gun owner is overwhelmed by his own paranoia and goes on a rampage.

The governor of New Jersey has been getting a lot of good press lately. But is he really the kind of politician conservatives around the country want to vote for?

Here's an interesting piece about signs that human population growth is actually beginning to decline (and not just in certain countries).
