Today on the Dish we saw an Alabama senator jump the shark. In Palin coverage, she tried to take back the Rush retaliation, new controversial emails surfaced, and tea-partiers started to get agitated. That Brown phone call was resolved here and here.

In other news, another small protest popped up in Iran. Daniel Indiviglio and others tried to make sense of the newest economic numbers. Uganda update here. Updates on HCR politics here and here, and more debate here, here, here, and here. Frum tried to rally moderate Republicans.

A Dish reader added to the copyright discussion, another sounded off on the Edwards story, and another argued for an Enquirer Pulitzer. Beard-blogging updates here and here. Very entertaining vids here, here, and here.
