MORNING HEADLINES: McMorris Rodgers, abortion and assault rifles... just another Thursday

Posted on Thu, Sep 1, 2011 at 8:20 AM

I hate you! I love you! — That was the reaction at last night's town hall meeting held by U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the Republican congresswoman in Eastern Washington. To paraphrase McMorris Rodgers' responses: She agrees with everything the GOP says.  (SR)

I choose to sue — An Idaho woman who had an "illegal" abortion is suing the Gem State, arguing that its "fetal pain" law in unconstitutional. (KREM)

Assault rifle! — The manliest of illegal firearms was found in a Spokane South Hill home yesterday when a SWAT team went a-knockin'. "It's apparent in at least this instance that the firearms were sold or traded to drug debts things like that. So the last people we want to have firearms are drug dealers," said a sergeant on the team. And tweakers. (KXLY)

Obama 0, Boehner 1,000 — Or some other huge number. How many times has the Speaker of the House stared down the President of the United States of America? (NYT)
