Every day we ask influential politicos to send us their top three bullet points that are driving the day's conversation inside and outside Washington.

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:

– Conservative groups (me, too) are going to rev up pressure on freshman House Republicans to oppose the three week Continuing Resolution.

– Senator Marco Rubio came out forcefully this morning opposed to the three week short term Continuing Resolution. His stance surprised some Republicans.

– Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) is rocking the boat. Over the weekend he said we needed to explore "all options" to balance the budget, which is code for tax increases. He also said he didn't want to defund NPR.

Talk Show Host and Online Editor of Mario Solis-Marich:

Charades: Lobbyists and spokespeople for the nuclear industry go into overtime billing after having had almost convinced Congress that modern reactors were “safe.”

Pictionary: 85k to 100k people protest in Madison and a philandering State Senator becomes the face of the Wisconsin anti-union GOP as the archetypes of 2012 are drawn and embedded in the minds of voters.

Scrabble: California Democratic Governor Jerry Brown studies his moves cautiously as the Golden States’ public workers whisper that “Walkered” is the newest verb.
