What is that?

When a grown man, frustrated, angry, with a loaded gun gets out of his car and follows a stranger, a child, and shoots him in the heart?

Republicans Essentialy Vote to Double Interest on Student Loans

Senate Democrats' one-year student loan fix was filibustered Wednesday, with 51 senators voting to move forward with it and 49 senators voting to block it.

The measure would have reverted student loan interest rates to 3.4 percent for one year after they doubled for new loans last week. It would have been funded by scaling back a tax loophole for individual retirement accounts (IRAs) that mostly benefits high earners.

Uh oh. Did Zimmy's lawyers open the door for the introduction of his assault on a cop?

All that "he is a soft, non-fighting dude" business sure makes his attack on a cop seem relevant.

Deadline Looms for Snowden (the noose tightens)

what if Snowden decides that he wants to stay in Russia?

It is unlikely Snowden will be welcomed. Alexei Pushkov, a lawmaker believed to have Putin’s ear, posted several comments on Twitter along the lines of the old saying “Hate to see you go but here’s your hat and coat.” One tweet implied that Venezuela would be a good choice for Snowden because that country’s relations with Washington were already so bad that his presence there could not make things any worse.

...

‘‘Right now, for example, there’s an intensified relationship between U.S. and Russian security services focused on Dagestan and counter-terrorism, leading up to the Sochi Olympics, “ explained Lukyanov. ‘’The Kremlin and the Russian security community wouldn’t want to derail everything because of this Snowden guy.’’...

And he will need an itinerary that avoids U.S. or European airspace, otherwise he may find himself grounded. That's what happened to Bolivian President Evo Morales when he was forced to land in Vienna, Austria last week and his plane was searched for Snowden....Snowden has lived like an invisible man for more than two weeks. But he may be about to make his presence truly felt for Putin – the world leader who most wants to see the back of him.

Hitler Chicken

Kentucky Fried Chicken told The Huffington Post Friday it may take "legal action" against a fried chicken shop named Hitler that sports a storefront emblem very similar to KFC's, only with Adolf Hitler's head replacing Colonel Sanders.

"We find it extremely distasteful and are considering legal action since it is an infringement of our brand trademark and has nothing to do with us," a spokesman for KFC parent Yum! told The Huffington Post in an email.

Hitler, which recently opened in Bangkok, Thailand, first garnered attention after Andrew Spooner, author of the "Footprint Thailand Handbook," snapped a photo of the restaurant and tweeted it out in May:
