Stephen Wallace: To see the impact big oil is having on the Amazon, I spent eight days with the Amazon Anchaur people. Every morning they vomit as a way of cleansing to start the day fresh. The next few hours are spent telling stories with the entire family present.

Sheria Reid: Tea Party Republicans have figured out if they have their own black folks, in limited numbers of course, then they can refute the accusations of racism and proudly declare, "We have our own black people; we're not racists!"

Brent Budowsky: One moment Paul says he might support a military attack against Iran. Then he implies he might accept a nuclear-armed Iran and follow a policy of containment. Then he says he won’t tell us what policy he prefers, comparing himself to Ronald Reagan.

Berry Craig: The other day, Grimes swatted another one into the cheap seats after McConnell got the expected NRA endorsement. She promptly tweeted a renewal of her months-old challenge to the senate minority leader to meet her on a gun range.
