Artur Davis stumping for Romney is almost a non-story if you've been following his migration from black Blue Dog congressman to Republican beltway lawyer over the last few years. However, Davis did second Obama's nomiation four years ago, so there's a bit of news there. Interestingly, he stumping in his new home turf of Virgina rather than Alabama; Romney doesn't need the help down there and VA is a swing state.
Davis might help more with white Blue Dog voters in VA than blacks; the latter is a tough demographic to crack while the former is increasingly in play as blue-collar voters see less and less of a rationale to vote Democratic if they work in the private sector.
This might be a vision of a less-civil political future; someone tried to shoot up the Family Research Council HQ in Washington. Thankfully, this disgruntled liberal didn't know how to do an assault well; there were no fatalities and only a security guard was shot.
Sad meltdown for Ocho Cinco. He gets arrested for head-butting his new wife, gets fired by the Fins and gets divorce papers filed... oh, and the reality show that was to follow the happy couple got cancelled. The guy needs prayer and therapy more than he needs a new contract, although he should have some miles left in the odometer once he gets his emotions under check; despite all the NFL fines and histrionics, this is his first run-in with the law.
