Better sit down for this one: the Coca-Cola corporation gets caught funding scientists who say that ingesting a lot of calories (like, you know, from soft drinks) doesn't have a whole lot to do with obesity. These scientists say things like, "'Eat less' has never been a message that's been effective," when the message more pertinent to Coke would be "eat less sugar." Or, maybe, "eat less shit."
After an ACLU report finding that Chicago's "stop and frisk" program just so happens to overtarget black folks, Chicago Police Department and ACLU agree to get an independent evaluation of said "stop and frisk" program. That's a good start; now we just have to get the police to do something with the information we already know they're going to get, rather than just shove it down the memory hole.
Jeb Bush's official campaign website accidentally (or perhaps "accidentally") puts up and then takes down attacks on Scott Walker and Marco Rubio. The attacks on Mr. Rubio compares him with Mr. Obama ho-hum (though citing Mr. Rubio's apparent missed votes might stick -- it sure stuck to John Kerry!). The attack on Scott Walker, however, is dead on, and worth repeating: "the only job Scott Walker cares about creating is his own." That's so good Mr. Walker's eventual Democratic opponent might steal it.
Speaking of the worst human being in politics, Scott Walker says he didn't know until this week that he was the target of the now-closed John Doe probe that ended in 2013 with six convictions of Walker aides. The man who combines the political cunning of George W. Bush with the micromanaging skills of Karl Rove didn't know that? The hell he didn't.
Finally, Moody's Analytics, which has predicted the last nine Presidential elections correctly, says a Democrat will win the 2016 Presidential election -- by the not-very-mandatey margin of 270-268. Moody's did not predict that the "liberal" media would promptly use this result to tell the winner to "stick to the center," but I'll go out on a limb and predict it. (Moody's model, incidentally, has the Republicans taking Ohio, Florida, Colorado, and Nevada -- and still losing, as Democrats narrowly take Virginia, New Hampshire, and Iowa.)
