Shameless Marriage

In other news, at least 28 House Republicans have pledged to vote against any government funding bill that includes funding for Planned Parenthood. If Speaker Boehner wants to avoid a government shutdown, he'll need Democratic votes to do it.

Meanwhile, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was asked for his position on the Syrian refugee crisis and he said he doesn't have a position. This is some weak sauce. (Update: Scott Walker has decided to take a position about 24 hours after he chose not to take a position)

And finally, the new head of Ted Cruz's Super PAC is a certifiable lunatic.

A long-time vice-chairman of the Texas Republican Party, where he is based, Barton is notorious for exaggerating his own accomplishments and for regularly making outrageous statements such as his assertions that the Founding Fathers opposed the teaching of evolution, that the Bible opposes Net Neutrality, and that Jesus opposes the minimum wage.

He is also a Second Amendment radical who believes that there should literally be no limits on what sort of weapons individuals can own, including tanks, jet fighters, or nuclear weapons.

Everyone knows Free Market Jesus was against Net Neutrality and minimum wage.

Ted Cruz is also a lunatic so I suppose this isn't necessarily revelatory.
