The Star Tribune reports that former Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak was hospitalized after becoming short of breath while cross country skiing Saturday. Rather than wait for a get well card, Rybak tweeted his own getting well verse from the hospital.

Sleepy Sea Lion Decides Someone’s Car Roof Is A Prime Napping Location, Sass Ensues

You know those days when you’re so tired that you could literally plop down anywhere and take a nap? This sleepy sea lion feels you.

How the sea lion managed to climb onto the roof of this car isn’t clear, but once she’s there, she realizes that it’s the best napping spot ever. And she’s not letting anyone take it away from her! My best guess is that the roof was warm from the sun, but it’s also possible that she’s just a diva. Either way, I hope the owner wasn’t in a rush to drive away.

As a crowd gathers, the sea lion decides to ignore them all and take a nap on the roof of this car. Sass level: expert.

Twitter trolls revive attacks on Barbara Bush following tribute video

http://twitter.com/#!/LindssMRayy/status/240962699046039553

Barbara Bush is trending because she and Laura Bush appeared in a video tribute to the 41st and 43rd presidents (and remote Mitt Romney endorsement) at the Republican National Convention.

We’ve all seen the George W. Bush “Miss Me Yet?” billboards, but one thing we didn’t miss was the “humorous” trashing of former First Lady Barbara Bush.

I long for the days of "Barbara Bush is really a dude" jokes. Sigh. #RNC.

— Andrew Panda Blake (@apblake) August 29, 2012

“Sigh,” indeed. We thought the meme was “GOP’s war on women,” not “war on GOP women.”

I'm sorry but Barbara Bush is the ugliest First Gentleman in the history of America.

P.S. If you really want to stay classy, you might want to watch that video again and take notes.

After watching the Bush video at #gop2012, Barbara Bush is one of the classiest Americans in our history.

HHS official to hold closed-door Obamacare meeting with only Democrats

http://twitter.com/#!/rorycooper/status/392764272163311616

Mike Hash, director of the Office of Health Reform at the Department of Health and Human Services, is set to meet with House Democrats tomorrow morning to brief them on the botched Obamacare rollout. According to the Washington Post, it’s the first time Congress will have been briefed on HealthCare.gov since the Oct. 1 rollout, and Republicans are not invited.

#AmherstUprising organizers at Amherst College demand end to free speech

A group of students at Amherst College in Massachusetts “occupied” the library yesterday, with some spending the night there:

#AmherstUprising organizers say the protest is to address “the negative social climate created towards our peers of color and other marginalized groups,” and to stand in solidarity with Mizzou protesters. What are the demands at Amherst?

One demand is to scrap the First Amendment:

The entire list of “demands” is here.

Another day of exercising free speech rights to speak out against freedom of speech?

#EarthToParis: Actor who pitched super-great Iran deal promotes climate change summit

If you ignore the “death to America” chants, the Ayatollah Khamenei’s violent imagery, continued threats to Israel and the fact that U.S. citizens remain hostages of Iran, the nuclear deal that Jack Black & pals promoted has worked out just great!

Next up, the “School of Rock” actor sets his sights on the upcoming U.N. Climate Change Conference in Paris:

Saving the planet from the threat posed by fossil fuels is such an important cause that President Obama will fly thousands of miles to be there.

‘Fore more years’: Democrat plane banners equal comedy gold

http://twitter.com/#!/DLoesch/status/241190413879361537

Ha! As Twitchy reported, Democrats aren’t too good at that whole flying plane banners thing. Nor at spelling, evidently. First, they flew one proclaiming “America is better then birtherism.” Next, one shrieking that Romney and Ryan are “too extreme for woman.” That’s funny coming from people who evidently still speak like cavemen.

Breitbart.com’s Dana Loesch decided to kindly help out the Democrats with ideas for new banners.

Next Democrat plane banner: "WE NO LIKE UGOPPERS"

‘BOOM crowd’ conspicuously un-boomy as BLS releases dismal jobs report

http://twitter.com/#!/BecketAdams/status/375960296675762176

What, no pom-poms and “rah-rah-econo-meh” from the usual suspects today?

Here’s why: Putting a positive spin on 7.3 percent unemployment is a fast track to beclownment no matter how cute the Left thinks its Obama cheerleader uniforms are.

We’re looking at downward revisions of June and July employment numbers and a 35-year low in workforce participation.
