A&E sus­pends Phil Robertson, the partriach of the Duck Dyn­asty cast, for mak­ing ho­mo­phobic and ra­cist re­marks dur­ing a GQ in­ter­view. Steph­en Col­bert and the Fox News fam­ily rally to Robertson’s de­fense and blame the Word Po­lice for all the evils in the world. 

Plus, Re­pub­lic­ans are di­vor­cing them­selves from the tea party. Their ir­re­con­cil­able dif­fer­ences are prov­ing to be a bit too much. 

And in today’s le­gis­lat­ive news: Con­gress has passed the budget com­prom­ise. Now the gov­ern­ment won’t shut down and law­makers can con­tin­ue to do… ab­so­lutely noth­ing.
