Updated 1:55 p.m. | Russia sanctioned nine top U.S. officials on Thursday, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Speaker John A. Boehner, a retaliation after President Barack Obama announced a new round of sanctions targeting Russian officials over the annexation of Crimea.
Those sanctioned took their appearance on the list as a badge of honor.
Proud to be included on a list of those willing to stand against Putin’s aggression http://t.co/AL67mauKqq

Updated 9:56 p.m. | Sen. Maria Cantwell is defending cornerback Richard Sherman after Sen. John McCain ripped him as “a loudmouth from Seattle” following his boastful rant after the Seattle Seahawks’ NFC Championship victory.
The Washington Democrat told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer that San Francisco wide receiver Michael Crabtree is to blame for provoking Sherman.
“If I had a Richard Sherman jersey, I’d wear it,” Cantwell said when asked about McCain’s remarks.
“I think he should focus on changing the name of the Washington football team that right now is an insult to Native Americans,” Cantwell told the newspaper.
The NFL disagreed with Cantwell, fining Sherman $7,875 for taunting (not, as we originally wrote, for the outburst).

A web-anointed “Kid President” took over briefly at the White House today, at least on YouTube.
The insanely cute youngster poked his head above the podium in a video released by the White House.
“It looks like you’re expecting somebody else, but April Fool’s on all y’all,” viral vid veteran Robbie Novak says. “I’m Kid President, and I hope everyone has an awesome day.”
The precocious would-be POTUS, who was invited to participate in the annual Easter Egg Roll festivities, has been presiding over his own online channel since just before the election.

Their bosses may not talk much, but lately White House Press Secretary Jay Carney has been mixing it up with House GOP flacks on Twitter, including a scrum today with Speaker John A. Boehner’s spokesman Brendan Buck. The pair traded each side’s latest talking points, although Carney’s two tweets — at last check — were easily outnumbered by Buck’s fusillade.
