The Day In Politics, 5/27

More

Today, we learned that Bush v. Gore lawyers have teamed up to challenge Proposition 8; a liberal coalition has launched the first Sonia Sotomayor ad; Jeb Bush, Jr. (not the former governor) endorsed Marco Rubio in Florida's Senate race; Mike Huckabee sought to raise money on Sotomayor's nomination; former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) said Sotomayor "appears to be racist"; Newt Gingrich said almost the same; Vice President Joe Biden cracked a Teleprompter joke; and two liberal groups declared America "a center-left nation."
We also ruminated on how Obama decided on Sotomayor; the significance of North Korea's missile test and threats; what happens if North Korea collapses; whether the right needs a Center for American Progress; the costs of food inspection--and who should pay them; and the security of maximum security prisons.

Tomorrow: President Obama meets with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the White House; Capt. Shane Murphy of the Maersk Alabama testifies before a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on piracy at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy.
