Sev­er­al Air Force of­ficers en­trus­ted with the na­tion’s nuc­le­ar ar­sen­al were re­cently caught in a scheme to cheat dur­ing a stand­ard pro­fi­ciency test. Steph­en Col­bert doesn’t blame them: How else is the United States sup­posed to beat the Chinese?

And in today’s polit­ic­al scan­dals: former Vir­gin­ia Gov­ernor Bob Mc­Don­nell and his wife face in­dict­ment after ac­cept­ing sev­er­al fin­an­cial gifts from the head of a health product com­pany.

And for the sake of karm­ic bal­ance, Chris Christie’s in­aug­ur­a­tion cel­eb­ra­tion was post­poned. After the New Jer­sey gov­ernor made George Wash­ing­ton Bridge drivers wait for ages, it’s only fair.
