The week that was
“I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself.” –Gen. Robert E. Lee
The Senate got nuked this week. By Harry Reid. He and his fellow Democrats adopted the nuclear option and decided to change the rules about filibustering presidential nominations and appointments because rules were made to be broken.

And speaking of breaking the rules, President Obama this week decided to delay healthcare enrollment until after the mid-term elections. Nobody can guess why.
The Young Conservatives at the University of Texas planned a “Catch an Illegal Immigrant Day,” but Buzzfeed declared it insensitive because getting people in trouble for breaking the law is mean. Also, see paragraph number one.
Adam Levine was declared the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine. Judging by the number of Americans who agree, the mag may have to rename itself Person magazine.
