A 54-year-old today will have to save an additional $182,000 in their Individual Retirement Account or 401(k) before retirement to pay for the House Republican plan to eliminate Medicare, an analysis released today by Rep.

A new voter-registration effort called the Tequila Party is aiming to get more Latinos involved in the political process. I've been hearing more and more about the group in recent days, including this tidbit from the Phoenix New Times:


DeeDee Blase, Arizona's Republican immigration activist, has a message for the Tea Party:

I really had no idea there was a Republican presidential debate last night, but if any of these guys are actually in the race against Obama on election day 2012, I'd be stunned.

Thanks to The Week magazine, I know can pretend I know something about the horses running in the Kentucky Derby tomorrow, including introducing me to Mucho Macho Man, a horse that has a story ready made for a Disney movie:
