Brown kicks off campaign – Warren money bomb raises a cool mil – WTF is going on in South Carolina – Even old dolphins go to the cape to die

THE BOMB: Scott Brown’s reelection kickoff (AP) wasn’t the only thing going on in Worcester yesterday. His probable opponent Elizabeth Warren was on hand elsewhere int he city to toss some bombs (W&T) at the senator and to launch her own fund raising money bomb – holy crap, she raised $1 million!? (Republican)

MITT MONITOR: Does Mitt Romney still make that old joke about marriage being between a man, a woman, a woman, a woman, etc? He should totally bring it back, after what went down yesterday in South Carolina. (Herald) I miss Rick Perry already.

MOSTLY HARMLESS: The Cape Cod Times has all your dead dolphin (and some saved dolphin!) bases covered this morning. Look at their slideshow to see how a team of Steve Zissous arrived on scene to aid these presumptuous sea mammals that thought they could just get up and walk on land to challenge our mastery of the Earth. Well we through the ones that lived right back in the ocean! Still number one, humans, still number one.

BIRTHDAY: In my endless pursuit to be more like Mike Allen, I’d like to wish an early happy birthday to Ipswitch Rep. Brad Hill, whose birthday is Sunday according to this calendar someone gave me.
