We’re back after a very undeserved vacation and the newsbusiness is all aflutter with some interesting stories.

Our favorite bit of news from this cluster is that Survivor is not happy Kim Davis used their song. Our second favorite bit of “news” is the powerplay by a Huckabee aid over Ted Cruz.
I so wish the Second Republican Debate was tonight so this shitstorm could be part of the conversation.
