.@BBCMarkMardell – How nice of you to parrot gop talking points on 'world domination'. And word for word no less. #pathetichack— (@amk4obama) May 28, 2014
Mardell always spouts the GOP line. I got sick of reading him on BBC online.
Ha, take that #danny.

RACHEL MADDOW 05/27/14
VIDEO: GOP senator picks fight with American veterans groups (15 minutes)
Rachel Maddow reports on the shaming of Republican Senator Richard Burr by U.S. veterans groups after the senator criticized them in an open letter ahead of Memorial Day weekend, and points out the GOP’s lack of engagement on matters of foreign policy.
Pakistan violence: Mehsud faction walks out of Taliban.
A split has emerged in the Pakistani Taliban after the major Mehsud faction walked out, saying the group leaders’ tactics were “un-Islamic”.
It is the first major rift in Pakistani Taliban ranks since 2007 when the umbrella group was first formed.
Analysts say the split may help advance peace talks with the government.
Tens of thousands of people have died in militant attacks in Pakistan in the last seven years, most of them claimed by the Taliban.
The rift comes after over a month of infighting in which dozens of fighters from the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) were killed.
The powerful faction comprising militants from the Mehsud tribe – the core around which regional militant groups initially gravitated to form the TTP – said it was forming its own separate group called Tehrik Taliban South Waziristan.
Good morning Ms. Chips, Danny and TOD family. I hope all is well with everyone this lovely morning. Congrats COS, on being first this lovely Wednesday morning.
GM and thanks RM.
Hey COS, PBO’s speech is definitely 10:0 AM EDT, hope that’s a good time for you?
Oh I’m SO looking forward to this :)
The bewitching hour down under – I shall hopefully still be awake
Good West Coast morning Chipsticks & TOD family.
So glad POTUS had a great time at the WH Science Fair. The participants will remember the day forever!
G’morning Chips & TOD! Look forward to hearing our President speak this morning. :)
So I see on my TL that SOS John Kerry schooled GOP shill Chris Cuomo on CNN this morning. Here are a few tweets…
@LiberalPhenom @AVD911 @JohnKerry @CNN @ChrisCuomo I missed it! Kerry rocks. Sounds like he owned Cuomo and his lazy RW talking points.— Annie Lawton (@CurlynDoris) May 28, 2014
@ChrisCuomo @LiberalPhenom So when are you going to try that on @GOP?— Alan J. Jones (@BishopJones51) May 28, 2014
Cuomo still hasn’t answered that last question, and something tells me he NEVER will…
@TPM @LiberalPhenom Brian Williams lost the last shred of credibility he had when he interviewed Snowden.— Коля Молодыко (@molodyko) May 28, 2014
If Brian Williams lost credibility interviewing Snowden, then serves him right!
I was against the interview but truth to tell I give Williams credit for getting the dope to admit he was a spy.
LOL. Sick BURN.
Okay…..a spy for whom??? Not the U.S. A spy for us would not leak all the secret info, so……a spy for Russia????? Where is he going with this? How can anyone believe a word the man says.
Given the current situation with Russia/Ukraine – Brian Williams lost any respect and credibility he ever had just by traveling to the country. Wonder who organized when/where he would conduct the interview? Doubt that will be discussed.
Carney says Pres Obama's speech will be "a broad view" of how he sees the US moving forward after a decade of wars. "Pretty comprehensive."— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) May 28, 2014

BREAKING NEWS ALERT:
Breaking News: Maya Angelou, the legendary Black poet and writer, has died. http://t.co/FKdx7NSzIg— (@Anti_Intellect) May 28, 2014
What an incredible loss – may she rest in peace.
Oh no, I am so sorry to hear this. One of the truly great figures of our time. She will be greatly missed.
God rest her soul. She will indeed be missed, but her writings will live on.
And Still I Rise…
Go with God, Maya Angelou, and with our gratitude for your voice and the Light you have shared with all. http://www.gratefulness.org/candles/candles.cfm?l=eng&gi=PBO
Ms. Angelou will be missed dearly.
Indeed she will.
How are YOU doing Lady Kay? :)
I’m well but tired. Ready for Congress to leave town for August recess LOL.
Heh…before you know it the summer will be here and then over. Hang in there! :)
Collegekay, as you already know the GOP have never been there.
Just “Walking Dead”. Do nothing and getting paid.
What really disgust me is they will get a huge pension.
My prayer is they will not return after 2014 to do damage to this country and the people who really need help and work hard to support their families. They have a lot of nerve to sit on their racist assess and righteously dictate who gets what and they live for free, cheat when they want, pay off when they need a favor.
My personal opinion is they have been in recess all year.
Here are some more details:
// WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Award-winning author, renowned poet and civil rights activist Dr. Maya Angelou has died. She was 86.
Mayor Allen Joines confirmed Angelou was found by her caretaker on Wednesday morning. Angelou had been reportedly battling health problems. She recently canceled a scheduled appearance of a special event to be held in her honor. Angelou was set to be honored with the “Beacon of Life Award” at the 2014 MLB Beacon Award Luncheon on May 30 in Houston. //
So very sad. May her beautiful soul RIP
What a woman. What a life she lived.
Heard her last on CNN talking to Anderson on the phone, I think in March, I believe.
Such a beautiful and sweet spirit. May her son, Oprah and so many dear friends be granted peace and comfort. I have her works, taught most of them, especially “Still, I Rise.” She touched a world with her voice, writings, and deeds for the goodness of all of his. May she rest in peace. Thank you, Dr. Maya Angelou for touching my heart.HZ
Carol Costello just wanted to show what Sec Kerry said in the Cuomo interview and was told ” It is NOT available “. I wish I had seen it.
