Good morning, Spectators! Have you missed the Morning Spectacle? Well, it’s back and better than ever!
Joe Biden is still weighing whether to get into the race (he’ll probably keep weighing it until after Hillary fails the first debate), but he’s already floating potential Veeps, including Chief Takes-a-Lot, Elizabeth Warren (D-$8.5M Net Worth).
Hillary Clinton showed up on Good Morning America this morning all, “HILLARY ANGRY, HILLARY SMASH,” hitting at Kevin McCarthy’s . statements about Benghazi affecting her poll numbers. In fairness, though, she was already angry, having just seen them.

In terms of declining to prosecute sanctions against Iran, a move codified in the new Iran deal the President and John Kerry inked with the Mullahs, the US was actually doing it before it was cool. A new Reuters report says we haven’t been stopping Iran from doing anything since 2013.
Kevin McCarthy may be the shoo-in for Speaker, now that John Boehner . is retiring, but Jason Chaffetz .is at least going to make sure it’s not easy for him.
A Senate candidate in – where else? – Florida has admitted to sacrificing a goat and drinking its blood in a pagan ritual. Needless to say, Augustus Sol Invictus (not his real name) has suspended his campaign indefinitely.
Bindi Irwin, daughter of the late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin, performed an emotional tribute to her dad last night on Dancing With the Stars. After you watch the video, just tell your coworkers you have allergies and its a “little dusty in here.”
On this day in history, the Senate Judiciary Committee declined the nomination of Robert Bork to the Supreme Court, thus beginning the endless Republican quest to pass an inscrutable “litmus test” of acceptability in Supreme Court candidates.
Keep plugging away, America. You’ll make it.
