Honestly, if you think both Pizza Hut and Domino's are a-ok, you need more help than an insurance premium subsidy.

Lemonade from lemons, per the Washington Post:
… The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has raised $3.7 million from 200,000 online donations since Boehner announced his lawsuit on June 25. And before her weekend remarks in Denver, Palin penned an op-ed on Breitbart.com on July 8, in which she declared: “The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored. If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.”
The DCCC sent two fundraising e-mails in the next 24 hours and raised $500,000 in the next four days…
This year, some of the most contested congressional races are in states like Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina and Michigan, all of which have sizeable black populations that could make the difference in which party controls the Senate. The calculus among some Democrats is that an Obama presidency threatened by the prospect of impeachment would bring black voters to the polls in droves…
…[T]he Clinton impeachment offers another lesson… Republicans, who had opened up a broad impeachment inquiry before election day in November 1998, faced a backlash at the hands of black voters, particularly in the South.
Democrats picked up five seats in the House and didn’t lose any ground in the Senate. For Clinton, those midterm gains were a rarity for a second-term president.
In North Carolina, where Sen. Kay Hagan is in a tight race, black voters proved critical in 1998, making up 20 percent of the vote. As well, in Georgia, where Michelle Nunn is on the ballot, blacks were almost 30 percent of the voters in 1998, up from 19 percent in the 1994 midterm….
Apart from standing clear while the Repubs shoot themselves in the feet, what’s on the agenda for the day?
