Everyday we ask influential politicos to send us their top three bullet points that are driving the day's conversation in and outside Washington:
Favorite moment of the day so far: DNC Chairman Tim Kaine on NBC laughing off the latest wave of Hillary Clinton to replace VP Biden for 2012 buzz by calling it idle speculation – like talk my Patriots would trade WR Randy Moss.”Don’t think there is anything to it,” Kaine said of both sets of trade talk. About an hour later my Patriots traded the aforementioned Randy Moss. Life, and politics, is funny sometimes. To the Bullet Points: Jane, like many Dems, likes the focus on Meg Whitman’s domestic past in the closing days of the CA Governors race. Her final point another reminder that 20 months into Obama, a lot of the questions from the left are holdovers from the Bush anti-terror debates. Erick’s has a sense of humor in points one and two. His No. 3 could be a word for word lift from a Democrat if this were 2006, when it was the Republican late ads that had a similar air of negativity and for the same reason: things looked bleak. Enjoy the day. - John King
RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:
- The Republican National Committee approved new debt spending to help candidates. And yes, they will get the federal government out of debt. Just ask them.
- Carter gives advice. Mondale gives advice. Dukakis gives advice. The Presidential seal falls off the Presidential podium. God has a sense of humor.
- Democrats have abandoned the issues and have resorted to the politics of personal destruction to take out their Republican opponents. They are that desperate.
