Rescuing anon’s comment from the Open Thread, Paul Ryan has decided that his first signature act of this new Congress would be to cosponsor a bill that would give legal rights to a zygote. Bills like this were roundly defeated everyplace they came up in 2012, if they even survived legal challenges. So this is the signal, right?

President Obama nominates his Chief of Staff, Jack Lew, to head the Treasury Department and the Republicans are having a fit. Why? Jon Chait has the answer:

Lew’s disqualification, according to numerous Republicans quoted in the story, is that he doesn’t agree with Republicans on public policy issues. The quotes are sort of amazing:

Johanns said it’s also about policy, saying a Lew choice would be “controversial.”

Australia Is Really, Really Hot

Take it away, Mr. Pierce: Australia is simultaneously burning down and melting, which is a considerable climatic feat when you think about it. There are gas stations that can’t pump fuel because it vaporizes too quickly. It’s gotten so bad that they have had to change the weather maps. “The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has […]
