Here are some other highlights and headlines that I noticed over at Ransom Notes Radio:

Despite being an anti-gun politician who is being investigated for illegal arms-trafficking, California Democrat Leland Yee still won almost 300,000 votes. It makes you wonder if Eric Holder has a political future on the West coast. (LA Weekly)

A California bill would mandate that sexual partners receive verbal, or written, permission from their partner before sex. (Wait… I thought liberals wanted government out of the bedroom.) I’m surprised that documentation of consent doesn’t have to be notarized and filed at the county recorder’s office. (Breitbart)

In New York, a Common Core test is under fire for not being rigorous enough. Apparently students who get merely 1/3 of the answers correct can still get a passing grade… I don’t know about you, but I think that 25% is way too low of a threshold. (Daily Caller)

Chiquita Banana spent $800,000 to block legislation that would allow 9/11 victims to sue companies that fund terrorists. Who would have guessed that a banana company from Columbia might have a sordid history in the world of international terrorism? (Fox News Latino)

I mean, seriously: five terrorists for one lousy deserter? Apparently the White House realized that their terrorist to POW ratio was off, which is why they are thinking about releasing another terrorist from Gitmo. (Fox News)
