Alanah Poullard—the five year old daughter of a wounded warrior—gets a written note from President Obama, excusing her from school for the day.

We really want to read this NY Mag piece by Jonathan Chait on Republican paranoia, but we can’t get past Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson's haunting shot of Newt Gingrich supporters at the top of the article. Whoa.

Best. Photoshop. EVAR.
