Over to you. Close-outs:

* SO MUCH FOR THE GANG OF 14: With an election a year away, Republicans apparently are set to block judicial nominations, no matter how well-qualified and thus forsake the Gang of 14 agreement forged by Sen. Mark Pryor and others. A Republican filibuster — joined by Sen. John "Dr. No" Boozman — blocked confirmation of Caitlin Halligan to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. The GOP excuse is that Halligan once argued for the state of New York — as her solicitor general job required — in support of a law extending liability for gun damages to a manufacturer. Democratic Senators say Republicans are determined to diminish Democratic influence on the important D.C. circuit.

* ELIJAH MEETS CANDIDATE: 'Ms. Bachmann: My mommy is gay and she doesn't need any fixing.'
