ARTICLE: Chris Stirewalt writes that a recent poll shows 2014's elections look worse for Democrats than 2010.
SPIN: Obviously for Democrats the failure under the Obama administration in the areas of healthcare and fiscal policy does not bode well for a voting population that will likely be starving for change. Does this country "owe" the GOP a shot at fixing some of the economic distributive issues that have defined the last few years? I'd say they do; Republican, Democrat or what have you, liberal policy under Obama was a well-intentioned macroeconomic mistake, and conservatives deserve to at least attempt to implement new economic safety nets that may not utilize such a heavy progressive tax structure. You don't have to be Bill O'Reilly to recognize that liberalism struggled under the Obama administration and conservative brain trusts should get a shot to manifest their doctrine.
ARTICLE: Yahoo! News reports on last night's "botched execution" in Oklahoma.
SPIN: Capital punishment in the United States has quickly reverted to complete and utter chaos. The lethal injection drugs are becoming harder and harder to find as ethicists have advised their employers to repeal the availability of these chemicals to prisons. Some have called for the return of the guillotine, others death by firing squad, but the real answer is an end to the death penalty.
ARTICLE: Barring an attempt to refinance your rock home yesterday, you're aware that Donald Sterling was banned for life by the NBA for racist comments he made in a telephone conversation.
SPIN: It's clearly a bold move by commissioner Adam Silver who seems intent on protecting the intuitively obvious culture of racial equity, especially in a league so numerically dominated by African-Americans. Sterling's comments spoke of a troubled man whose mindset is stuck in a different era, an excuse that does not dilute the insensitivity of his comments. The Clippers continued their first round matchup despite reports that suggested a potential boycott, a decision good for LA fans and fans of the NBA.
