AB.com Hot Topics - 4.18.12

Here's the daily rundown.
As many as 21 foreign prostitutes involved in Secret Service scandal [WashPost] - Hard to believe this whole thing could have been avoided had one officer just paid one hooker a measly $47.

Despite Excessive Pandering, Romney Still Trails Obama On Female Vote By Wide Margin [ChicagoTribune] - As I said last week, Ann Romney seemed to be a little too giddy to take advantage of Hilary Rosen's dumb statement, even going so far as to refer to it as a "birthday present" for the campaign. And that, is precisely how you flip a positive back into a negative. Quit while you're ahead. Milking victimhood is never good, unless, of course, you're Sarah Palin.

In Senate, Republicans Block Debate on 'Buffett Rule' [Post-Gazette] - Yeah, like that ever had a chance of passing. It didn't.

Holographic Tupac may go on tour with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg [HitFix] - Please. Just. Stop. Now.

Stocks rally: Dow back above 13,000 [CNN Money] - Positive signs for the economy after a rocky past week.

Ted Nugent Threatens Barack Obama [TheAtlantic] - I shouldn't give this ingrate any attention, but I do find it interesting that the Secret Service is looking into this.

What's much scarier than Nugent's screed is how attentive the audience is. Mind you, this is at an NRA convention. So uhhhhm yeah, get the Secret Service involved.
Question: What do you think about these issues?
