UP: U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan. Pocan marks 100 days in Congress with an appearance on The Colbert Report. During the interview, comedian Stephen Colbert presents Pocan (D-Madison) with a cupcake crammed with 100 birthday candles and then lights them all. Pocan gamely endures Colbert's awkward questions about being gay, ObamaCare and squeaky cheese.
DOWN: The Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism. The Republican-controlled Joint Finance Committee adds a provision to the state budget that would forbid the UW-Madison from providing office space for the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, the nonprofit news agency that focuses on "government integrity and quality of life issues." Finally, Republicans find something in common with President Obama in attacking journalists.
