Be in the know: Today's political bullet points

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.

Firedoglake.com Blogger/Founder Jane Hamsher:

- Federal Reserve Board Data Confirms Failure of Politicians and Economists in Aftermath of Great Crash

- Jane Hamsher Hits Tea-GOP and White House for Ignoring Jobs

- House GOP Pulls Libya War Powers Resolution, Fearing It Would Pass

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:

- John Edwards is indicted. I get the point, but the whole thing just seems like a silly waste to me. The guy is finished and disgraced already. Is this really a wise use of federal tax dollars?

- Turns out Anthony Weiner does know how to call the cops and he did call the police. It's just that he didn't call the police about his blackberry sending dirty pictures. He called the police about a reporter who dared to show up at his office to ask about the pictures.

- I am a big fan of Sarah Palin, but many of her ardent supporters have now taken up the conviction that Fox News is out to destroy Palin. Seriously? At some point in political campaigns, ardent supporters of various politicians become disconnected from reality. Sadly, this Presidential season is seeing that disconnection from reality happening way too soon.
