Terrorism has gone to the dogs: ForeignPolicy.com Deputy Managing Editor Rebecca Frankel‘s photo essay about the kick-ass canines known as “war dogs”  went viral yesterday when it was discovered that one of the subjects of her ongoing feature helped take down Osama bin Laden. Fun Fact:  Did you know that in early 2010, the U.S. Army had over 2,800 active-duty dogs deployed?  Don’t miss FP’s amazing stories and photo gallery dedicated to these patriotic pooches.

Happy Hour: Christine Delargy finally proved her theory that ‘weeknight boozing’ and ‘winning the day’ are directly related.  While partaking in an after-work libation at Morton’s last night, the CBSer spotted one John Boehner smoking a few cigs and enjoying a bottle of red wine.  The result of the random encounter was today’s scoop that the Speaker of the House chose not to watch the first GOP presidential debate.

Huckabee Hoopla: On May 5th, RCP’s Erin McPike reported that Fox News brass gave former Governor Mike Huckabee, a contributor to the network,  until the end of the month to decide whether he will retain his contract or make a run for the presidency.  In response to the story, Fox News VP Bill Shine issued a statement saying, “There’s no truth whatsoever to this report.”  Today, RCP’s Carl Cannon fired back in defense of McPike.
