News and commentary not to be missed:

  • Authorities have determined the pipe bomb that exploded at an oil executive’s home last Friday was targeted at the wife of the executive, and not the executive himself.  (h/t @MelissaTweets on twitter)
  • A conservative watchdog group released a study purporting that illegal voting by felons may have given Senator Al Franken his win back in November 2008.
  • Once again the “racist” charge is being leveled at the tea party movement.  This time by the National Association for the Advancement of COLORED People (ironic isn’t it?).  These same charges have been leveled at the tea party movement before, but even with Andrew Breitbart’s $100,000 reward for video evidence from just one person amongst a crowd of thousands, no evidence has ever been recorded.  Politico has the response to the NAACP’s claim from a tea party representative here.   Nest are a couple of video clips from Fox News.  The first is David Asman of Fox News talking with Breitbart about Michelle Obama’s appearance as the keynote speaker right before the NAACP took its vote to label the tea party racist and his reward offer for video footage that backs up the “racist” claims:

The second video is an interview of both Andrew Breitbart and Mike Meyers of the New York Civil Rights Coalition who says the NAACP is suffering a kind of “brain death” like Alzheimer’s and is now a political arm of the White House:
