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.

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:

– The Debt Commission proposal is dead on arrival. Ain't government grand!

– Bachmann steps aside and Jeb Hensarling becomes House GOP Conference Chairman. No, this was not a tea party vs. establishment fight.

– What's the next big fight on the right? Ratification of the START treaty.

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

– Final Bow: Pelosi searches for votes to provide tuition equity for undocumented students in the lame duck session as the GOP scrambles to gag their anti-immigrant Congressional newbies.

– Limited Engagement: Birther and flame thrower Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann denied a GOP house leadership post in an attempt to keep presumptive House Speaker John Boehner’s color from turning to red.

– Encore: No one is surprised as deficit commission Chairs call for a decrease in tax rates and the removal of tax deductions that bring a net increase to the middle class tax burden while proving more cash to the top 1%.
