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:

-TSA bad press continues. Get ready for the Republicans to have hearings.

-In the New York Times profile of Sarah Palin, Steve Schmidt offers yet another clue as to why John McCain did so poorly. In encouraging Joe Lieberman to pray with Sarah Palin as a way to boost her spirits, Schmidt says, "You’ve got something in common with her that we don’t have: you’re both religious."

-Conservatives are drawing two lines in the sand with House Republicans: (1) do not make Fred Upton as Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee and (2) make Jack Kingston the Chairman of the Appropriations Committee

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

-Reid is dreaming big: Leader Reid announced that he will bring an in-state tuition bill for undocumented students forward in a move that can emancipate the dreams of millions of young people and make him the country’s eldest rock star.

-Obama is dreaming sweet: “Run Palin Run! Run Palin Run! Run Palin Run!”

-Napolitano is just dreaming: Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano is sleeping through the TSA groping scandal as a growing national outcry threatens her career.
