http://twitter.com/#!/BerniceKing/status/483079354331582466 2014 is the 50th anniversary of “Freedom Summer” the huge voter registration project in Mississippi focused on registering black voters during the summer of 1964.  In her tweet about Freedom Summer, Washington DC delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton made reference to Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran needing the votes of black Democrats to win his runoff election with tea party challenger Chris McDaniel. http://twitter.com/#!/EleanorNorton/status/483078507140878336 It’s not entirely clear what Norton’s point is, but she is either suggesting that black voters squandered their right to […]

http://twitter.com/#!/SamValley/status/472443810216443904 Is there a “rule of threes” when it comes to political resignations? Many are hoping that’s the case now that the resignations of both Jay Carney and VA head Eric Shinseki have been announced. Who is the third resignation many are hoping for? http://twitter.com/#!/GOPMommy/status/472460259642982400 Dare to dream! http://twitter.com/#!/scause1701/status/472463070082920448 So true, but it’s fun to imagine nonetheless: http://twitter.com/#!/KristinaRibali/status/472439132463968256 http://twitter.com/#!/KJohnsonTN/status/472469859021094912 http://twitter.com/#!/ChrisBarnhart/status/472438196836388866 http://twitter.com/#!/mann_cmann1008/status/472482747429437441 http://twitter.com/#!/moelane/status/472438557227765760 http://twitter.com/#!/StanleyCohenLaw/status/472464758780616704 How about a trade? http://twitter.com/#!/imau2fan/status/472447706557063168 Heh. *** Related: ‘Absolutely insane’!

Queen Hillary might tolerate your presence if you follow these rules [pic]

http://twitter.com/#!/Liz_Kreutz/status/476350639241691136 So … no selfies with Queen Hillary? That’s an all-caps “NO.” Hey, Hillary fans, was it worth waiting in line all night outside Barnes & Noble for “NO posed photography,” impersonal Hillary scrawls and no signed memorabilia? “Anything for her safety,” gushed some of the people waiting in line to score a signed copy of “Hard Choices.” They’re probably swooning over the “YOU’RE TRAPPED ON THE 4TH FLOOR UNTIL YOUR BOOK IS SIGNED” rule. http://twitter.com/#!/Liz_Kreutz/status/476363830491377664 Hillary […]

http://twitter.com/#!/JJMORGAN9122/status/431900769638285312 Greta Van Susteren loves her cat Bill. We can’t really blame her.

Looks like Bill’s just being Bill: http://twitter.com/#!/gretawire/status/320571325431304192 Maybe he’s just vegging out. Or: http://twitter.com/#!/MACHTink/status/431900995111505920 That’s a definite possibility: http://twitter.com/#!/gretawire/status/365594420181090304 We hope Bill’s OK and that he — and Greta — have a relaxing weekend. *** Related: Twitchy coverage of Greta Van Susteren […]
