From THE WASHINGTON POST:
WASHINGTON — Alarm and condemnation erupted Thursday from European capitals, the White House and leaders of Donald Trump’s own party after the Republican presidential nominee suggested the United States might abandon its NATO military commitments if he were elected president.
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, who backed Trump at the party’s national convention only two days earlier, said he totally disagreed with the statement but was willing to “chalk it up to a rookie mistake.”

From The Fix at The Washington Post:
Ted Cruz doesn’t care if John Boehner hates him. He likes it.
Ted Cruz is running for president.
No, he hasn’t announced it yet. But if you can tell a man by his actions […].
The latest example […] came Wednesday, when WaPo’s Bob Costa reported that Cruz was actively encouraging conservative House Republicans to oppose the spending bill pushed by Boehner aimed at addressing the crisis of undocumented children crossing at the southern border.
I hate to tell you this. I mentioned this on the air some time ago. Romney, the best thing he can do is remember this election isn’t about him. He may as well be Elmer Fudd as far as we’re concerned. We’re voting against Obama. I don’t care who they put on the ticket, we’re voting against Obama.

From The Boston Globe:
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is worth between $190 million and $250 million, his campaign said yesterday after filing a personal financial disclosure statement with the Federal Election Commission.
That dollar figure would likely make him the wealthiest candidate in the 2012 White House race, far and away eclipsing President Obama. His only possible GOP rival is former governor Jon Huntsman of Utah, who has yet to release his disclosure form and is among the heirs to the Huntsman Corp. fortune.

From Taylor Marsh at THE HUFFINGTON POST:
At the end of a defensive post about Sarah Palin’s hunting fiasco taped on her TLC show [Sarah Palin’s Alaska], the Wall Street Journal blog finally admits to a final insult out of the whole sorry spectacle:
“True enough. It was a young cow, something most hunters would have passed up, looking for a more impressive trophy.”
The caribou she shot was a young cow.
It’s not going to help Sarah’s image, which in the latest McClatchy-Marist polling has the Tea Party queen trailing the pack.
Ohhhh, those pesky Democwats! They weawy make me angwy! Continue reading
This will be the last installment of the series, so let’s take a look at some of the comics and comic-related pix we haven’t seen before. One of the longest running comics is Dennis the Menace, and we have had a few different Dennises. There was Chimpy, with Deadeye Dick Cheney filling in for Mr. Wilson…

One of my favorite animated shows on television was King of the Hill. It took place in Texas, so it naturally reminded me of Chimpy. Since it’s the 10th anniversary of the Supreme Court appointing Chimpy to the preznitcy, it’s fitting we begin with a picture of him (and even more fitting that it celebrates the end of his reign, knowing all the damage he did)…
