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.

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:

– The Fast & Furious investigation in Congress is heating up and now Congressman Issa has a U.S. Attorney cooperating with him.

– The CNBC debate on the economy is tonight. Hopefully they'll spend more time on 9-9-9 than the four women.

– So Sarko and Obama really did bad mouth the Israeli PM. After NY-09's loss, the President might want to work a bit more on rehabilitating himself with voters who are very pro-Israel.

    How can we know who said what to Joe Paterno? If someone said: I heard from someone that Sandusky was raping/fondling, etc a boy in the shower. Then Paterno did the absolute right thing. He reported it to the proper authority on campus. If on the other hand, someone whom Paterno felt was reliable reported seeing Sandusky raping a boy, then he should have reported it to the police. But....we don't know who said what and I don't believe Paterno should be subjected to the court of public opinion until we do know. Why didn't the person who saw it happen report it to the police, or better yet stop it??? I believe we don't know a lot of things.
