.@ebbitt Wasn't intended as a joke. I think it's a profoundly serious matter. Someone swept it under the rug. And that is appalling.Who at the NFL will get the flag for intentional grounding of the Rice video? And who called the play?

My first impressions notwithstanding, worth reading @WayneSlater of Dallas Morning News on Perry indictment. http://t.co/vDIvBbOlEi.Thanks to @MikeBloomberg, for standing up to gun lobby bullying and devoting himself and his resources to the cause of safer communities.

That's implied by those who objected to my Tweet and would be a lot more serious. But then why haven't the prosecutors said it? 4/4Is the charge that Perry plotted to push her out so he could put his own person in and stifle ongoing corruption probes of his allies? 3/4I understand that if the DA had quit, as Perry demanded, the Governor would have had the authority to replace her. Correct? 2/4I've gotten lots of unhappy emails after my Tweet that Perry indictment looked "sketchy." So here are my questions: 1/4.Great luck to my old friend and partner @davidplouffe. A real visionary, Plouffe will make @uber go!

@debdlund yesUnless he was demonstrably trying to scrap the ethics unit for other than his stated reason, Perry indictment seems pretty sketchy.

Just to clarify: "Don't do stupid stuff" means stuff like occupying Iraq in the first place, which was a tragically bad decision.

Sad to hear about Jim Brady's death. He was kind to me when I was a young reporter, and later became an inspiring voice for sane gun laws.Polishing Tea Party apple: McConnell, who opposed Rand Paul for senate, now calls him "most credible" KY cand for POTUS "since Henry Clay!"

@dougmcd3 nice pickup for @chicagobulls!Shouldn't it be taxpayers suing Congress for LACK of action, instead of Congress suing the President for doing too much?@UChiPolitics All-Star Fellows lineup: @SEIU_Eliseo @kevinbleyer @asymmetricinfo @PatrickMurphyPA & Steve Schmidt! http://t.co/hEBlIFTZTZIn other words, were black votes in MS for Cochran just a temp marriage of convenience, or will their votes Tuesday impact on his in Senate?Wondering if Cochran's much-ballyhooed outreach to black voters in MS will in any way impact on his approach to issues in Senate?
