Today on the Dish, Cohn and others reacted to the news of Obama's HCR summit (just as his support among Independents was slipping). Andrew countered the claim of fiscal conservatism among the tea-partiers, called out the crazy side of the Tea Party movement, and took another look at Palin's convention speech. He also highlighted another bit of odd evidence related to her pregnancy. Frum and DiA scrutinized her speech, NIAC confronted her Iran rhetoric, and Continetti still had starbursts. Samberg pwned Palin and the Dems. Weekend recap here.

In other coverage, Douthat examined Paul Ryan's sensible plan for fiscal reform, Andrew sounded off on the Hoyt-Keller spat over Ethan Bronner, and a reader challenged Totten over The Hurt Locker. Ana Marie Cox took on Rich Lowry over DADT while FNC displayed some admirable opposition to the policy. Jane Mayer, backed by Horton, put the spotlight on Rahm Emmanuel over torture policy. We highlighted the right way to interrogate. And there was a shocking report of an American soldier waterboarding his own daughter.
