Be in the know: Today's political bullet points

Everyday we ask influential politicos to send us their top three bullet points that are driving the day's conversation in and outside Washington:

Good morning. No time to relax after closing the books on the season's big primaries with a few more shockers. Yes the Democrats are most nervous this year, but it's also increasingly apparent the GOP grass roots openly scorns the party's establishment – the coast to coast Tea Party upsets are proof positive. In today's bullet points: what a changed world: Erick on the right sees Karl Rove as out of touch; Jane on the left sees him as dead on in his analysis of Delaware. Strange year? 'Nuf said. – John King

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:

– The NRSC has officially become Darth Vader. Having flipped to the dark side, the rebels keep taking out the Death Star. This time in Delaware.

– Democrats are giddy at the thought of taking Delaware. The White House, however, should be careful. If the GOP takes back the Senate, it would help Obama's re-election more than if the GOP just has the House.

– Karl Rove's comments on Delaware suggest he is a man far removed from the GOP grassroots.

Firedoglake.com Blogger/Founder Jane Hamsher:

– Republicans elect a candidate too crazy for even Karl Rove, and primaries give plenty of ammo to the democrats' "They Suck Worse" strategy, while actual issues die a bloody death.

– Voters enthusiastic about electing crazies, but can't understand why America is tanking.

– US deficit going down under Obama; will GOP notice?
