It’s Monday, and despite giving it the old college try, we just can’t cover it all. So what did we miss today?

Wayne Brady: ‘I’ll Gladly Slap The Sh*t Out Of Bill Maher’ Over Obama Remark – Remember that Dave Chappelle skit when Wayne Brady was all gangster? Apparently, it wasn’t all a joke.  He had a few words for Bill Maher: “Just because you f*ck black hookers, just because you had that particular black experience… I have to stop myself to getting into it because I realize the thing is if I had gone on his show, or even doing it online, I’m not going to win. Because as soon as you back off, he still has his platform to say whatever he wants to.” Ouch. {HuffPo, Black Voices}

Senator Dick Durbin to Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr: ‘You have a responsibility to tell the public what’s going on’ – For the past few weeks, Rep. Jesse Jackson has been pretty mum about what’s been going on with his health.
