Piers Morgan’s attempt at smack talking NRO’s Jonah Goldberg goes limp

http://twitter.com/#!/piersmorgan/status/199541677826908160

We Brits are a nation of warriors @JonahNRO – everything's a match. But I promise a fair fight tomorrow, and it will be about your book.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) May 7, 2012

He’s a warrior. Gasping for breath!

As Jonah points out, it’s kind of odd that a reputed journalist considers an interview with a conservative as some kind of battle. Again.

.@piersmorgan Ah Piers. That's part of your problem. You claim to be unbiased, but you considered the interview a "match."

— Jonah Goldberg (@JonahNRO) May 7, 2012

And Jonah goes in for the kill.

Not sure why @piersmorgan is so eager for my "A" game when he had so much trouble with my C-game.

— Jonah Goldberg (@JonahNRO) May 7, 2012

If Twitter is any indication, “the match” will have Piers in tears. Maybe Twitter will, too.

Twitter users with a moral compass are disgusted that the trip took place at all. They give the couple the business, and rightly so.

‘KASICHMENTUM!’ Guess who’s in last place in the latest Michigan polls

<sarcasm>Boom!</sarcasm>:

The Hill cites two polls in the article. The first is from the Detroit Free Press which has the race at 29% for Trump with Cruz at 19%, Rubio at 18%, Kasich at 8% and Carson at 7%.A second poll from Fox 2 Detroit/Mitchell Research & Communications has Trump leading with39% of the vote followed by Rubio at 19%, Cruz at 14% and Kasich at 12%.

It was just a few days ago that Kasich’s chief strategist was telling everybody that it was Rubio who was stealing Kasich’s votes:

And that Rubio had “flopped”:

And that race was headed to Kasich’s “home turf”:

Oops. Time to go, governor:

Here’s the latest average of polls from Real Clear Politics, excluding the one from the Detroit Free Press:

17 Of The Most Fabulous Gender Neutral Bathroom Signs

Gallup: Record number of Americans believe government is too powerful

Gallup has released the findings of a new poll:

Sixty percent of Americans believe the government has too much power. Well, better late than never:

Sharyl Attkisson pledges to ‘keep going on Benghazi as long as there’s a story’

CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson has been one of the few reporters doing some actual digging into many recent scandals, and one of them is Benghazi. Attkisson’s work just received three Emmy nominations, and one of them is for her reporting on Benghazi.

Tweeters who want to get to the bottom of the Benghazi story offered congratulations, support and encouragement to Attkisson:

O’Malley Rules Out Bid For Mikulski’s Senate Seat

“I am hopeful and confident that very capable public servants with a desire to serve in the Senate will step up as candidates for this important office. I will not be one of them,” the former Maryland governor said in a statement Tuesday.

Patrick Semansky / AP

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley said in a statement Tuesday he will not run for retiring Senator Barbara Mikulski’s seat.

“Senator Mikulski has done an outstanding job representing Maryland in the U.S. Senate for nearly 30 years. I am hopeful and confident that very capable public servants with a desire to serve in the Senate will step up as candidates for this important office. I will not be one of them,” O’Malley said.

On Monday, O’Malley declined to comment on a potential run.

“Today is a day to reflect on Senator Mikulski’s service to the people of Maryland, not engage in political speculation,” O’Malley’s spokesperson, Lis Smith, told BuzzFeed News.

Republicans said Monday that they now view the Maryland open seat as a pickup opportunity in 2016, despite the fact that no Republican has won a Senate race in the state since 1980.

A serious GOP effort in Maryland would require Democrats to spend money in the state they weren’t planning on in 2016.

O’Malley, a two-term Democratic governor with a legacy lauded by progressives, would have been be a strong Democratic candidate in a state with a number of other potential Democratic candidates. But running for Senate would have meant abandoning his uphill bid for his party’s presidential nomination, which as already seen him travel to early primary states and hire staff.

Hard pass: Jane Sanders signs up the usual suspects for her new progressive institute

The Bernie Sanders fans who had no interest in donating to Hillary Clinton’s “Onward Together” racket now have a place they can call their own. Jane Sanders on Wednesday announced the launch of the Sanders Institute to find progressive solutions to economic, environmental, racial, and social justice issues.

What fence? Rep. Jason Chaffetz tours Mexican border

http://twitter.com/#!/jasoninthehouse/status/319206225743073280

It was just last week that Arizona Sen. John McCain toured the U.S.-Mexico border, where he watched a woman climb an 18-foot border fence. This week it’s Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz’s turn to tour the border, but as he illustrated with photos, the “path to citizenship” has handrails, and not all fences are 18 feet high.

If you think that fence is inadequate, you ain’t seen nothing yet. So, here are some pictures of nothing.

No fence on this part of the border. It is a walkway and stairs. twitter.com/jasoninthehous…

— Jason Chaffetz (@jasoninthehouse) April 3, 2013

Don’t let McCain see those stairs; the country just can’t afford to be building escalators at the border right now.

No fence. You can walk across the border, with handrails twitter.com/jasoninthehous…

— Jason Chaffetz (@jasoninthehouse) April 3, 2013

As Chaffetz tweeted, problems at the border aren’t limited to Mexico.
