Lunch Buffet

Still grumpy about Supreme Court oral arguments, but food therapy helps. Here’s a quick dose of mental pick-me-ups:

* Daily Caller‘s Matthew Boyle stares at George Zimmerman video and thinks he may see head wound! Killing of Trayvon Martin justified! Hooray for our team!

* House GOP decides to play chicken with Senate Democrats over transportation bill.

* Newt & Mitt met secretly before Louisiana primary. Appears Romney did not agree to make Newt co-president.

* AP reports Obama campaign had spent $135 million through February, a bit more than combined spending of GOP candidates.

* Video surfaces of Mitt Romney calling John Kerry out-of-touch rich guy with big house in 2004.

And in sad, non-political news:

* Earl Scruggs dies at age of 88.

Back in just a while.
