What's the Valentine's Day equivalent of the Grinch? Todd Starnes reports on that "Boys and girls at a Massachusetts elementary school have been banned from bringing Valentine’s Day candy or cards over cultural equality issues and federal guidelines regulating candy. Parents of students at Salemwood Elementary School in Malden, Mass, received a letter informing them of the policy...'We have many different nationalities, cultures and languages spoken,' Principal Carol Keenan told Fox News. 'Because of that we don’t honor specific holidays.'"

But doesn't she like Chris Christie? Conservative commentator Ann Coulter told Sean Hannity yesterday that the GOP should not consider "funny-looking" candidates for the 2016 presidential nomination. Well, I'm out.

Math Department. Two days after delivering a State of the Union Address in which he called on both parties to work together to trim the deficit, President Obama hit the road to promote a new entitlement, universal preschool. In a speech at a Community Recreation Center in Decatur, GA, the president warned that students who enter kindergarten without sufficient preparation "don't know their numbers."

In view of Mr. Obama's stewardship of the federal budget, it appears he's speaking from experience.


Politico reports that "Bill Maher wants 6-year president term." Well, if that's what he wants, he's just going to have to run for election like everyone else.

Today is Valentine's Day - an occasion when people all over the world will spend time with those they love the most. In Washington, the White House disputed reports that President Obama wanted to spend the day by himself.

It is of course, a painful time for those who have recently lost loved ones. My heart goes out to them, especially to those in the liberal media. Their plans for a magical evening with accused cop killer Charles Dorner are now completely ruined.

Stay tuned for updates throughout the day.
