All the news that's fit to tweet. And fit to be altered in the name of shameless internet/comedic glory.
It's times like these that remind you why you became a GOP-themed crossword puzzle maker.
Sounds like somebody's got Pope envy.

Oh, man! I'm so mad at myself! Why did I have to take a day off yesterday? Why?! Not only did I not get to wish everybody a Happy Martin Luther King Day, but I didn't get to wish everybody in Arkansas a Happy Robert E. Lee Day!
As you can see from Secretary of State Mark Martin's official state holiday calendar, commanding general of the Confederate army Robert E. Lee's birthday was celebrated yesterday along with civil rights leader Martin Luther King's.
The two birthdays happen to be within a week of one another — King's on the 15th and Lee's on the 19th — but that seems like little more than serendipity. It's hard to imagine a more perfect pairing of celebrations.
I just feel bad for all the Arkansasians who must have been torn between attending a civil rights memorial service and human trafficking commemoration ceremony.

Last week, the governor of Maine told a reporter to convey the sentiment that the state's chapter of the NAACP could "kiss my butt." What exactly provoked this sensual and erotic declaration?
Gov. Paul LePage, a businessman who this month became Maine's first Republican governor in 16 years, declined to attend or send a representative to a Martin Luther King Day event. When sponsors complained, LePage told a reporter Friday: "Tell them to kiss my butt."
LePage retreated slightly the next day, saying he would be happy to meet with civil rights leaders to talk about the needs for all the people.
Oh, the brand-new governor will surely rue the day he chose to speak so frankly! Surely the hue and cry from Maine's ginormous black population will ruin LePage's chances for reelection.
Still, it helps to take into account that LePage, the eldest of 18 children born to a French-speaking family in rural Maine, probably has no idea what a Martin Luther King is.
He does, however have an adopted black son, which adds an extra layer of weird to this tale.
