The Wrap-Up: November 11, 2011


In a 95-0 vote, the U.S. Senate passed a jobs bill for veterans.

Most Americans believe that government SHOULD address the growing income gap.

The Michigan state House passed the anti-bullying bill, but without the controversial language passed in the Senate.

Rhode Island is learning that inequality has a price.

Ashton Kutcher has no idea why Joe Paterno was fired, and that got him in trouble.

Despite (or maybe because of) rampant sexual harassment accusations, Herman Cain raised a lot of money since the beginning of October.

It increasingly seems as though the GOP candidates are hellbent on cutting America's investment in the next generation.

Rick Perry may not be able to debate (AT ALL), but at least he can make fun of himself (even though there are plenty of people doing that for him).

Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign may not be as dead as many thought.

A bill was introduced into Congress providing for age appropriate comprehensive sex-ed because, as we all know, abstinence only education is crap.

The Tea Baggers Party in four minutes.

The eleven best & worst political quotes of 2011 (at least so far, there's another month and a half for Michele Bachmann to say something stupid). 

Speaking of Crazy Eyes Michele Bachmann, she is yet another politician to be occupied...but not by Marcus.

And lastly, I would like to personally thank all Americans who currently serve or have served in the armed forces. It is because of people like them that, among other things, we can all speak freely on blogs like this.
