Alright, after filling in for a couple of days last week, I'm back for the full week. Let's get right to it... well, right after taking a moment to praise Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy for saying that the NRA's Wayne LaPierre reminds him of "the clowns at the circus." I'd say that's putting it nicely, eh?

Taylor Marsh: Hillary Clinton's already the frontrunner for 2016 – So are you ready for some "Hillsteria"?

Occasional Planet: An open letter to unserious MSNBC hosts – Could you please grow up already?

The Brad Blog: Gingrich campaign worker pleads guilty to election fraud – Are more arrests coming?

BeggarsCanBeChoosers: The complex truth about racism – Are today's "stealth" bigots worse than old-school racists?

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction (@mjwstickings). I'll be here all week.
