>> First Donald Trump was a conservative front runner—the horror! Then Michele Bachmann—oh, the horror of horrors! Then Rick Perry. And now after Chris Christie said he will not run, Herman Cain leads polls. Anyone, but Mitt Romney. Why does the Republican base dislike Romney so strongly despite critical endorsement? The Wall Street Journal says it's because he's a technocrat, a Democratic principle. But really is it because he's Mormon? Who initiated socialized healthcare in liberal Massachusetts? Who looks like a bureaucratic robot? If Republicans prefer a black man over Romney, we really are living in a post-racial country. (ABC News, Huffington Post, CNN, the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal)

>> Major unions like the NY State United Teachers, Service Employees International Union and the Transport Workers Union will join the Occupy Wall Street protesters at 4:30 today in the biggest demonstration to date, up to 5,000 people. Let's hope this combined "populist rage" of hippie activists and unions goes more "power to the people" and less Tea Party balls-out nutso. (Mother Jones)

>> After four years in Italian prison, 24-year-old Amanda Knox returned as a free woman to her hometown of Seattle today. Now we can all go back to practicing our Satanic cult rituals. (CNN, the Telegraph)

>> After former U.S. autoworker John Demjanjuk, 91, was convicted in May of Nazi war crimes, German authorities have reopened hundreds of Nazi investigations to act quickly before time runs out. As Nazi war criminals are in old age, this prosecution "represents the final opportunity to witness justice carried out in [survivor's] lifetimes." Sick Brad Pitt on 'em. (USA Today)

>> And finally, file under Lars Von Trier slips: Country music singer Hank Williams Jr. compared John Boehner playing golf with President Obama to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu playing golf with Adolf Hitler. He apologized, capitalization his: “I have always been very passionate about Politics and Sports and this time it got the Best or Worst of me. The thought of the Leaders of both Parties Jukin and High Fiven on a Golf course, while so many Families are Struggling to get by simply made me Boil over." So is Williams a zionist? Did Netanyahu develop time travel technology? I'm so confused. (the Telegraph, Huffington Post, Hank Williams)
