Scalia: no grudge on the bench; McCain finds his voice; Hookergate is closing (read-this roundup)

Here’s what the Loop is reading this morning:

No bad blood here. (Pablo Martinez Monsivais/AP)

There’s that guy — Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) showed his fiery side in his defense yesterday of an aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton against kooky accusations that the staffer is somehow tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, which is trying to infiltrate the government, natch.

Hookergate, closing — Ten Secret Service agents will be punished for that hookers-in-Colombia scandal.

Celeb donation — Morgan Freeman has played God and POTUS in movies, and now he’s exercising power in another way: The actor is giving a cool million bucks to pro-Obama super PAC Priorities Action USA.
