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.

– "Plop, plop. Fizz, fizz. Oh what a relief it is." No doubt they're singing that at the White House this morning as the jobs report comes out and the Alka-Seltzer gets passed around. Start your stop watches and see how long it takes the White House to suggest another stimulus package is needed. Already, left-wing boy wonder Ezra Klein is lamenting that the last one was just too small.
– Meanwhile, Bill Burton of Obama campaign and White House fame says no one will vote based on the unemployment number. He is most likely right. People won't be able to afford the gas to get in their car to drive to the polls to vote at the rate we are going.
– And then there is John Boehner. The new rumor is he is leading Republicans toward going along with $1 trillion in new revenue for the government through "revenue increases" that are somehow not supposed to be tax increases. There's just one problem. Should you take a chart and plot on it all the revenue projections to come in from tax . . . er . . . revenue increases in the past thirty years and then plot how much those increases actually brought in, the actual is always less than the projected. It's the opposite of Barack Obama's now-famous chart showing what unemployment would be if the stimulus passed versus it not passing.
