Laugh: from BBSpot, Bush proposes Universal Time Zone, one of those so plausible it must be real jokes [via jennet.radio]

Cry: Republicans use their far deeper pockets to transform politics across the country, as described in this NY Times OpEd essay from texas, coming soon to a statehouse near you. [via garret]
