Obama office adores psychotic Marxist thug  —  Che Guevara, the chief executioner of Fidel Castro's brutal revolution, was a bank robber, a cold-blooded murderer, an enthusiastic torturer and generally an evil, sociopathic bastard.  He's quite literally the poster boy for everything wrong with socialism.
John Cole / Balloon Juice:
That Didn't Take Long  —  Captain Ed, loyal party flack.  —  I would take this as a sign that the GOP now feels threatened by Obama.  —  BTW- Is there anyone except the troglodyte right who thinks our Cuba policy has been a success and doesn't need to be thought through?

Did Esser call the primary for McCain... or McKenna?  —  Since prematurely calling Washington's caucus for John McCain, thus changing the narrative of Saturday's results, WSRP Chair Luke Esser is making a name for himself nationwide... or rather, the nation is making up new names for him.
David Kurtz / Talking Points Memo:
WHAT HAPPENED IN [HAZZARD] SNOHOMISH COUNTY?  —  Looks like Boss Esser is going to have some serious ‘splainin’ to do.  —  TPMmuckraker's Paul Kiel spent the day trying to figure out what was going on in Washington State.  It wasn't easy.  Just understanding the caucus process itself has been a challenge.

Radley Balko / The Agitator:
Did Bill Sink Hill on Purpose?  —  Before I explain, let me say that I'm not a (Bill) Clinton hater.  I actually like the guy.  I've grown nostalgic for the Clinton years.  The economy was booming.  He was the most free trade president we've had in a long, long time (certainly more free trade than this one).
