Today’s Water Cooler lineup of off the beaten path online stories are: Congress Approves Funding for D.C. Abortions, Overseas Providers, Prez’s lovefest with Wall St. ‘fat cats’, Olbermann’s Conniption: ‘There is No Liberal Media’.

  • Life Site News:  Congress Approves Funding for D.C. Abortions, Overseas Providers
