A few stories to check out from today…

1. Politico Mag goes live, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell takes a hit. The physical description alone is devastating: “Gray, watery eyes bulging out from behind his glasses; thin, bloodless lips pursed into a frown.” Read the full story by Jason Zengerle here. Glenn Thrush‘s “Locked in the Cabinet” is also worth a read. A great line from Jim Messina, deputy Chief of Staff, to Josh Earnest, then a “young aide” regarding Energy Sec. Steven Chu: “What were you thinking?” he yelled. “And how, exactly, was this fucking on message?” Yes, Politico uses profanity in their new magazine.

2. If you haven’t had enough of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and care to know what or who he is or is not eating these days, read TheAtlanticWire‘s comprehensive update.

3. Guess who doesn’t like MSNBC’s Alec Baldwin?

(Have a story for “Bath Time”? Send it to me at I will not call you out for being a self-promoting weasel if you send me your story. If it’s good enough – or at least entertaining in some way – I’d love to highlight it.)
