Remote-controlled duckling Marco Rubio has released a new campaign ad, “Morning Again in America” — a metaphorical promise of a fresh start after eight sullying years of Big Bad Obama.

After being open for only a month, Catfé, which is currently Vancouver’s sole cat cafe, has briefly shut down due to all of their kitties finding loving homes. Now it’s just a regular cafe. :( But it’s still good news!
