Holy crap! I guess when you schedule a carnival out for two weeks it gives everyone time to submit – we have 29 to choose from this week. Some may seem questionable on the surface as to whether they are related to politics – but – once you go read them you can see how it fits.
I want to thank all of the contributors. For my readers – please thank them by visiting their blogs and commenting – I’m sure they will appreciate it.
If you also noticed – I’ve been posting quite frequently lately. Yes, I still have the eye problem (Adie’s Pupil – google it) – but – I’ve been using drops that contract the pupil so it has been helping. I hope to continue that string of posting and bringing the popularity up on this blog again.
So – browse these articles and feel free to comment here and at the contributors’ blogs. ENJOY!

Scott Spiegel presents A Tale of Two Pauls posted at Scott Spiegel, saying, “Train wreck legislation like ObamaCare is worth repealing, but if Medicare and Medicaid are running out of money, and Social Security is in the red, why shouldn’t we go after every entitlement shibboleth?
