    And Iran enters the fray, as I predicted. Obama read something about it in the newspapers.

    If Bergdahl washed out of the Coast Guard, that’s no reason he wouldn’t get a chance at another branch. After all, Obama’s first book read like it was written by a college freshman who wasn’t exempt from English Comp, but he got help with a second chance and became C-in-C. You have to believe in unicorns and rainbows and Affirmative Action!

    Also, after the news of Cantor’s defeat, Rand Paul goes all in for immigration reform.

    Can we at least now be free of the nonsense about him being a presidential contender – EVER?

    He seems to be pushing for border security first, which is as good a way of killing it as any, I guess. I’m withholding judgment until more comes out.
