By a vote of 56-43, Loretta Lynch was confirmed as Attorney General of the United States on Thursday afternoon.

Hey, this is fun: agents for the Drug Enforcement Administration based in Colombia have been attending sex parties with local sex workers since at least 2001, parties that are paid for in part by local drug cartels. Nobody’s getting fired. Why would anybody get fired? »
Welcome to the second installment of DUDEFIGHTS, a new more-regular-than-I-anticipated feature that highlights Inside Boys fighting with each other and me just sitting back and enjoying the action. »
The photogenic gay couple from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign announcement video has invited the Democratic only-runner to their upcoming wedding. Too bad she’s probably going to be kind of busy for the next five hundred days. »
