Josh Marshall: Medicare For The Win (TPM)
Getting rid of or gutting Medicare is incredibly unpopular. It can only be accomplished by a mixture of bamboozlement, scare tactics and unified party government which will allow the GOP to push the change through regardless of public opinion. Saving Medicare or giving everything in the effort to do so is a tailor-made way for Democrats to cut across the Trump-Clinton divide and undermine the idea that Trump or the GOP have the interests of the middle class or really anyone but libertarians and the extremely wealthy at heart.
TIERNEY SNEED: Trump May Face An Early Test On Obamacare That Could Tell Us A Lot (TPM)
A procedural step taken by the House GOP in its lawsuit targeting Obamacare is an early but revealing signal of the choices congressional Republicans and President-elect Donald Trump will face in repealing the Affordable Care Act.
Christopher Charles Slayter: 5 Obscure Places That Somehow Produced Everything You Love (Cracked)
Some places just inspire creative greatness, and others are built entirely on entertainment industries: Nobody's surprised when new country music talent comes out of Nashville, or to learn that most movies come from Hollywood. But there's "this place is favorable to artists," and then there's "somebody is clearly growing rock stars in a lab in Virginia." These are the latter: …

Donations in Mike Pence's Name
The number of donations to Planned Parenthood in Vice President-Elect Mike Pence's name has more than doubled in the last six days.
Planned Parenthood confirms to PEOPLE that they've now received 50,000 individual donations in the Indiana governor's name, representing 25 percent of the 200,000 donations that came in since the election on Nov. 8.
"We've seen an unprecedented outpouring of support, with more than 200,000 people donating in the week following the election - a quarter of whom pledged to be monthly supporters, recognizing the long-term work that is needed," Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood, said in a statement shared with PEOPLE. "Tens of thousands more are pledging to make sure access to health care is protected. We are so grateful to this community across the country, and we will never stop fighting for them."
The idea to send donations to Planned Parenthood in his name went viral on social media as a response to Pence and Donald Trump's election win. Pence has fought throughout his political career to defund the organization.
Pence first introduced a bill to eliminate their funding as a member of Congress in 2007. The legislation did not pass, but he continued to fight Planned Parenthood because the organization provides abortions.
Education Secretary Calls For End To Paddling Students
John B. King Jr.
Education Secretary John B. King Jr. is urging governors and school leaders in states that allow student paddling to end a practice he said would be considered "criminal assault or battery" against an adult.
King released a letter Tuesday asking leaders to replace corporal punishment with less punitive, more supportive disciplinary practices that he said work better against bad behavior.
More than 110,000 students, including disproportionate numbers of black and disabled students, were subjected to paddling or a similar punishment in the 2013-14 school year, said King, citing the Education Department's Civil Rights Data Collection.
Corporal punishment is legal in 22 states.
"The practice has been clearly and repeatedly linked to negative health and academic outcomes for students," King said during a conference call with reporters. "It is opposed by parent organizations, teachers unions, medical and mental health professionals and civil rights advocates as a wholly inappropriate means of school discipline."

Auction House Sells For $416,300
Summers Place Auctions has sold a composite dodo skeleton to a private collector for 336,100 pounds ($416,300), including buyer's premium.
The unique specimen of a creature once found on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean was created by a dodo enthusiast who collected the bird's bones for 40 years until he realized he had enough bones to create an almost complete skeleton.
Hunted into extinction, the Dodo has come to epitomize the cruel impact that man can have on an ecosystem. The bird's name recognition was enhanced by Lewis Carroll, who included a dodo in "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland."
Summers Place had put a guide price of between 300,000 pounds and 500,000 on the item auctioned Tuesday.
Rare Card Sells For $54,970 At Auction
An extremely rare Pokemon trading card -- the "Pikachu Illustrator" -- was purchased for a record $54,970 at auction, organizers of the sale said Monday.
Dallas-based Heritage Auctions said the card, of which 39 were ever made, sold to an unidentified Hong Kong collector at Saturday's auction in Beverly Hills.
"The Pikachu Illustrator card was given in January of 1998 to winners of the CoroCoro Comic Illustration Contest," Michael Halperin, a spokesman for Heritage Auctions, told AFP.
He said only 10 of the cards are known to be in mint condition and it is unclear how many are still privately owned.
The "Pikachu Illustrator" first sold in the early 2000s for around $23,000, Halperin said.
In a lengthy Tuesday interview with the New York Times, Donald Trump (R-Grifter) repeatedly cast aside some of his provocative past statements.
The president-elect's phenomenal rise to the White House was characterized in part by his boisterous personality and flair for the theatrical. His off-the-cuff responses to journalist's questions and impulsive attacks against rivals endeared him to conservative voters who wanted a candidate to "tell it like it is."
But it could be difficult to make governing compromises with the same level of mud-slinging coming from the Oval Office. Trump struck a far more mellow tone during his interview with the Times. Based on early tweets about the session, by Times journalists Maggie Haberman and Mike Grynbaum, Trump backed off of several extreme policy proposals and harsh insults against political opponents. He even backed off his attacks against the Times earlier in the day.
During the 2012 presidential election, Trump called the Electoral College "a disaster for a democracy" and said it had made "a laughingstock out of our nation."
But after he defeated Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the Electoral College while losing the popular vote, Trump tweeted that the Electoral College is "actually genius" because it "brings all states, including the smaller ones, into play."
Tries To Stop Document Release
Lawyers for Indiana Governor and Republican Vice President-elect Mike Pence (R-Hate Radio) argued in court Monday that the state's judicial branch has no authority to require him to comply with Indiana's public records law.
The civil case before Indiana's Court of Appeals was brought by Indianapolis attorney William Groth, who sued in 2015 after the Pence administration denied a request for un-redacted records, including a document related to Republican efforts to stop President Barack Obama's immigration executive order.
Pence has long presented himself as a champion of a free press and the First Amendment. That's a contrast to President-elect Donald Trump who made attacks on reporters a hallmark of his campaign and refused to release his tax records as other modern presidential candidates have done.
In March, Pence vetoed a bill that would have exempted private universities from releasing some police records, calling it "a disservice to the public and an unnecessary barrier to transparency." And on the campaign trail he aggressively criticized Democrat Hillary Clinton for refusing to release emails sent from a private server she maintained while secretary of state.
But his gubernatorial administration has argued against the public release of emails and other documents that could shed light on his tenure as governor. In some cases, his office has withheld documents, delayed responses or flatly denied public records requests filed by The Associated Press and other news organizations.
In The News
In the wake of a campaign cycle that saw "fake news" widely shared on social media - and widespread criticism that his company did not do enough to combat it - Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg announced late last week that his company is working to address the problem of "misinformation" being spread on the site.
"A lot of misinformation is driven by financially motivated spam," he wrote.
Paul Horner, a writer who makes his living off writing fake news stories that go viral, told the Washington Post that he believes Donald Trump won the election because of him.
"I think Trump is in the White House because of me," Horner said. "His followers don't fact-check anything - they'll post everything, believe anything."
During the campaign, several of Horner's intentionally false pieces were picked up and shared on Twitter by members of Team Trump. In March, Corey Lewandowski, Trump's campaign manager at the time, posted Horner's story about an anti-Trump protester supposedly being paid $3,500 to protest at one of his rallies.
The blue and gray stripes struck Jillian Eisman like a lightning bolt.
She was rummaging through a packed closet during a Long Island tag sale when she immediately recognized the symbol of horror and hate: a jacket worn by a prisoner at the Nazi Dachau concentration camp during World War II.
"I knew exactly what it was, even before I saw the numbers (84679 on the chest)," said Eisman, who purchased the jacket for $2 at the sale last year and donated it to the Kupferberg Holocaust Center in New York City.
Curators there not only put the jacket on display, but also unearthed the story of the person who wore it: a teenager forced to make munitions for the German war effort, spent four years in a relocation camp and then came to America, never telling his children much about Dachau or that he kept the jacket.
The story of Benzion Peresecki - who later became Ben Peres - is told in extraordinary detail, thanks largely to the serial number and careful records that he kept and that his daughter found long after he died.
