Tim Pawlenty
>> That horrible train-wreck of the Republican debate happened last night in Ames, Iowa, and for those of you too busy reorganizing your sock drawer, you missed Tim Pawlenty and Michele Bachmann going at it. Pawlenty on Bachmann: “She fought for less government spending, we got a lot more. She led the effort against ObamaCare, we got ObamaCare. She led the effort against TARP, we got TARP …. If that's your view of effective leadership with results, please stop, because you're killing us." Or please continue because you're killing them. (NY Mag)

>> British Prime Minister David Cameron may censor social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter due to their use in organizing the recent riots. More than 1,200 people have been arrested nationwide so far. Ban like an Egyptian. (CNN, Fast Company)

>> Though Russia had previously abstained from the UN vote to sanction Libya five months ago, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev toughened sanctions on Libya because it had to as a U.N. Security Council member. Russia was concerned it would lead to a full-scale military operation. What would give Medvedev that idea? (All Africa)

>> Mark Ciavarella, a former juvenile court judge in Luzerne County, Pa., was sentenced to 28 years in prison yesterday for the "kids for cash" scandal. Ciavarella accepted $1 million for sending thousands of often harmless juveniles to the for-profit detention facility. The children are our incarcerated future. (Reuters)

>> And finally: Eighteen-year-old Robert "Sandy" Vietz drunkenly peed on a whining 11-year-old girl on a JetBlue flight yesterday. Vietze was on the U.S. Ski Team with hopes of attending the 2014 Winter Games in Russia. Not anymore. Vietz shows one example of how to literally piss away your dreams. (NY Post)
