Also John Crawford shot with barely any warning.

Dinesh d’Douza gets a infomercial for his movies on Fox News, the insane new ad Republicans are running to get women voters, Fox hosts wonder if Women fighter pilots mean “there are boobs on the ground” and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
