The Big Story, By Joe Conason
Rumors and whispers of a late presidential bid by Jeb Bush are difficult to consider seriously -- if only because the deadlines to enter many primary contests have past, the necessary money and campaign staff are not in place, and the mechanisms for a "brokered convention" do not exist. And yet some worried Republicans are evidently imagining a rescue by the former Florida governor.

Such fantasies arise from the unappetizing choices that now confront Republican voters. But if Jeb Bush were to enter the field, as he has wisely declined to do so far, the public scrutiny that has damaged the current candidates so badly would turn toward him -- and swiftly reveal an enormous deadweight of political baggage. What Florida voters once accepted (0r ignored) might well horrify the national electorate today. READ MORE

Restore Our Future has been a boon for Romney, who has benefited greatly from the group's TV ads attacking Newt Gingrich in particular. Such ads were purchased with the help of repeat donors, including Marriott International Chairman J.W. Marriott Jr., who has given the Super PAC $750,000 to date.

Prison officials banned inmate Mark Melvin from reading "Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II," Douglas A. Blackmon's Pulitzer Prize-winning account of how the South instituted a form of de facto slavery by mass arresting black men on nonsense charges and "selling" them to plantations, turpentine farms and other places of back-breaking labor. Prison officials, says attorney Bryan Stevenson, felt it was "too provocative, they didn't like the title, they didn't like the idea that the title conveyed." READ MORE

Iran's oil ministry said Sunday it stopped crude shipments to British and French companies in an apparent pre-emptive blow against the European Union after the bloc imposed sanctions on Iran's crucial fuel exports.

The Koch brothers -- the financial backers for Americans for Prosperity, the conservative group dedicated to making Barack Obama a one-term president and rolling back union rights across the country -- rarely give interviews. So a lengthy discussion with the Palm Beach Post is noteworthy -- especially because David Koch bluntly asserts that he and his brother are helping Governor Scott Walker fend off a recall by angry voters in Wisconsin.

"We're helping him, as we should. We've gotten pretty good at this over the years," he says. "We've spent a lot of money in Wisconsin. We're going to spend more." READ MORE
