The Daily Wrap

More

Today on the Dish, Andrew kept the spotlight on the Simpson-Bowles breakthrough, with complete analysis here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. Kilgore predicted the GOP will go after Medicaid, Cato thought the Tea Party could help trim the Pentagon budget, and Kevin D. Williamson fired back at NRO readers on why the deficit plan makes sense.

Andrew remained aghast at Bush's interviews and reviews of his book, and a Pentagon study group reported we could end DADT with minimal risk, and no special treatment. Drum discussed the GOP brain-drain, Damon Root defended federalism, and birthers loved to email absurd videos. Bernstein examined the GOP's lame horses, Douthat offered a second opinion, and Tom Jensen found a bright side for Palin. We examined inflation charts to check out Palin's grocery numbers, and the cookies were debunked. People like to vote even if their votes don't matter, but they didn't appreciate their politicians acting out of spite.

Iraq reached a new government agreement, and Goldblog reprimanded Bibi on borders. Poppy seeds cost a mother the first days with her newborn baby, the Cannabis Closet book was coming, and the war on drugs pushed people to buy chemically-laden "legal high" drugs. Fallows engaged his coal critics, and we might one day replace street lamps with glowing trees.

Barack wasn't Jimmy Carter, Bristol Palin sported a Tea Party t-shirt during dance rehearsals, and Old Spice got spoofed. Poem for Veterans Day here and six word memoir video here,VFYW here, best view in London here, MHB here, FOTD here, Moore award here, and vintage gay tumblr here.
