By Ed Kilgore

Here’s some side dishes you can enjoy with your Friday fish sticks:

* Most of us have probably forgotten there was a Rielle Hunter/John Edwards sex tape. Now it’s in her custody, and by court order will be destroyed. Hunter does not aspire to reality-show career, it seems.

* New Raz poll showing Mitt retaking lead in MI convinces Nate Silver to change projection to 4-point Romney win, but notes Santorum has beat projections before.

* Some Paulites convinced Santorum deliberately crushed their candidate’s hand after AZ debate.

* Protests over NATO Koran-burning incident in Afghanistan turning very lethal

* Romney campaign having to crop puffs of editorial endorsements, which often concede his shortcomings.

* Abby Rapoport wonders when outrage over Virginia sonogram proposal will spread to Texas, which is now implementing similar law.

Back in a few.

    Re: the VA and (impending) TX sonogram laws

    The day when legislation dictating what we ladies do with our wombs is finally put to rest as officially unacceptable as matter of human decency cannot come soon enough. I think we've accepted that laws forcing sterilizations were wrong--when we will we reach the same point with regards to women's health procedures?

    I just sit here and wonder how many years it's going to take to straighten out the mess the tealiban has made, with help from dimwit dems. I fear, like warrantless wiretaps, Gitmo, the Patriot Act, et al, it's all here to stay.

    It did look like Ricky was trying to rip Ron Paul's arm out of his socket with that "enthusiastic" hand shake.

    Maybe there was a voice in his head telling him it was Satan dressed up like Ron Paul so he should try to dismember him.

    I asked a friend about what she thought about was going on in VA (she lives in Richmond). She said VA is comprised of three distinct areas: NoVA, the Norfolk/eastern portion of the state, and "Deliverance-ville".

    I almost fell out of my seat!!!

    Truly, there is a merciful God who loves us all.
