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. My TSA experience today was polite and quick, scan and all. My ATC experience not so quick; long tarmac wait followed by circles in the sky for an hour. But I landed to a spectacular fall day. To the bullet points: Erick and his friends are on the TSA's case not only because they view its procedures as over the top. They also have post election confidence in their power to change things.

The outcome of his No. 2 point will have way more impact on that change test. That Erick and Mario arrive at the same debate on No 3 tells me there is more to come! Mario's first point is a good post-election test of whether OFA can muscle a victory, and of whether Latinos will again be disappointed if the White House falls short of another promise. Enjoy your day, and if you have strong feelings about the TSA debate please help us with a note suggesting a solution. We need safe planes and we want to be happy and hassle free travelers. But how? – John King

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:

– It's Thanksgiving Week, which means there will be a very high volume of airport traffic and more people experiencing the outrage that is the TSA.

– Conservatives are gearing up for their final push to fight for House committee chairmen.

– People are rushing to take sides on what Barbara Bush said about Sarah Palin. Maybe they should check out her context before picking sides.

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

– Credit where it’s due: The Obama administration has launched OFA and is deploying a dose of White House prestige in an effort to pass the DREAM Act and make a difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands.

– Credit not given: GOP leaders and pundits are angry that GM will survive and millions of jobs were rescued as a result, they are lucky that the media has not picked up on their gross selfishness.

– Credit not desired: Karl Rove is the man behind the curtain of what appears on the surface to be a spontaneous eruption of anti-Palin statements from prestigious GOP women.
