I had never heard of these dolls.

The Obamas understandably put the end to the manufacturing of them.


Don't forget that Neil deGrasse Tyson’s new show StarTalk starts tonight.

I'm really looking forward to this. 11pm ET, 8pm PT on the Nat Geo Channel. He is so amazingly good at explaining the cosmos.

Criticizes Hillary Over Same-Sex Marriage Flip-Flop, Is Totally Probably Running

Now that Hillary Clinton has declared her candidacy for president, the Democrats are realizing that she is a colossus, with no one striding to oppose her. The only person likely to oppose her is Maryland governor Martin O’Malley, and he ain’t talking –but he will criticize Hillary over her flip-flops.

“It’s a colossal undertaking, and there are many different components of [a presidential race]”, O’Malley said at a Harvard University event, according to The Guardian. “Organization, policy, personnel –- its a lot to put together…I’ve never run a bad race, and I don’t intend to start now –– if I were to do this.”

Where Are Hillary Clinton's Democratic Rivals? Seriously! What Will We do?

I'd like to know this two - what, is she going to debate herself? This is ludicrous and truly pisses me off!

The Missing Democrats

As the campaign to succeed President Obama shifts into high gear, Republican voters seem assured of a contested race for their party's nomination that will feature generational, geographical, occupational and ideological contrasts. On Monday, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida announced his candidacy for the 2016 nomination, joining declared or almost-declared candidates Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor; Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker; and Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas.

All these candidates profess to be conservatives, but differences abound on issues from immigration to school reform to the U.S. role in the world. (Paul, though he denies being an isolationist and supports military action against Islamic State, says that “my predisposition is to less intervention.”) There will be at least nine debates before the party's convention next summer in Cleveland, offering ample opportunity for a clash on the issues and greater clarity about what the candidates believe and how they would translate their convictions into policy.

There also will be posturing and evasions, of course. But debates refine candidates' positions in a way that inquisitions by the press cannot.

That brings us to the Democratic presidential field. In order to have a debate you have to have more than one candidate, and to have a debate that will command public attention you need a real contest.
