North Korea has decided to once again up the rhetorical ante by threatening an attack on Guam, Hawaii, and the U.S. mainland. This comes after a litany of other threats that seemed to have been mostly ignored by the international community as a new round of UN sanctions were passed in the wake of North Korea’s third nuclear weapons test.

Despite having the support of many prominent politicians in Hawaii including House Speaker Joe Souki (D), a bill to legalize marijuana for adults over the age of 21 recently died in committee. The bill was killed because it didn’t have majority support in the chamber.

In just the last few decades there has been a radical change in opinion about marijuana legalization in Hawaii with support for reform growing significantly in the past seven years. According to a QMark Research poll commissioned by the ACLU, a solid majority of voters in the state now support legalizing, regulating and taxing marijuana for adults.

Hawaii’s governor Neil Abercrombie appointed his Lt. Governor, Brian Schatz, to fill the vacancy created by the death of Sen. Daniel Inouye.

The Washington Post has come up with one of its usual inside-the-Beltway, “we asked everyone at our cocktail party” articles about who will take Senator Daniel Inouye’s place.
Of course, it’s in their usual “we know this person, and we want to protect our access” form. It doesn’t provide an accurate run-down of potential candidates, a view of Hawaii Democratic politics, or much of anything of value, other than the usual mutual back-scratching.

Arizona’s birther-curious Secretary of State Ken Bennett has been getting jerked around like a Daily Caller “reporter” by the strangely un-American named Jill T.

Last night was a big night for Rick Santorum, as he secured primary victories in two southern states, Alabama and Mississippi.

Tonight’s GOP contests — primaries in Alabama and Mississippi and a caucus in Hawaii — have the potential to really shake up the race. The two Southern primaries in particular could potentially make or break the Santorum or Gingrich campaigns. Polls suggest the top three candidates are very close in Mississippi and Alabama, so anyone could win.
