Contributor Nadine Smith and former contributor Andrea Hildebrand's son, Logan, has spent a long (in baby years) time around powerful and beautiful women. Is it any wonder then, that he's reaching out for First Lady Michelle Obama? Here's the caption the White House released with the photo:

So what else is on the radar today? Here you go:
- Newt Gingrich's campaign may be dead in the water, but the corpse is still swimming. Newt fired his campaign manager yesterday and laid off a third of his staff, but he still swears he'll float into port in Tampa. Wow, this stretched analogy makes me think of a movie.
- Maryland state senator Anthony Muse thinks there are too many Jews in Congress compared to how many African-Americans are in the Senate. No word yet on how the two are related.
- The Pope met with Fidel Castro today. Birds of a feather and whatnot.
- A conservative member of the British parliament is worried that if the country gives gay people the freedom to marry, Shakespeare and the Bible will have to be re-written to reflect gender neutral pronouns. Congratulations, Sir Roger Gale, for winning the Hyperbole of the Week award.
- Congressman Bobby Rush, D-Illinois, was removed from the House floor for shucking his suit jacket and putting on a hoodie this morning. A Mississippi Republican representative, Greg Harper, had him removed for violating a rule that says legislators can't wear a hat on the floor. Natch.
- The Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal of a lower court ruling that says prisons have to provide proper medical attention to transgender people.
- Speaking of Supremes, the Indiana Supreme Court will remain an all-boy band. My home state is one of only three with no women on the highest court. Governor Daniels picked his former chief counsel, Mark Massa, to fill the empty spot and then, of course, claimed it wasn't a political decision. No, of course not. It was based on Massa's lack of a vagina.
