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 President gave a very good speech. But did he need to involve the FBI and so many FBI agents when the killer was caught?

– If the media had spent half as much time talking about extreme political rhetoric after someone burned down Sarah Palin's church as they have after the Arizona shooting, maybe we wouldn't have the need to be talking about it now.

– Stupidest thing you will see today: The Los Angeles Times suggesting the GOP not try to repeal Obamacare because it is too divisive. Actually no, around two-thirds of Americans want it repealed. Nice way, though, to capitalize on 6 dead people and others critically injured to peddle a political agenda.

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

– Mis-Launch: Sarah Palin attempts to look Presidential in a seven minute Target-Gate address and ends up with a new PR crises for using anti-Semitic imagery.

– Moon Landing: Obama's Tucson memorial speech reminds us that America can be better as well as why we elected him to office.

– Lost in Space: Governor Jan Brewer misses the opportunity to call for civil dialogue in Arizona – a state that has been dubbed the "Mecca of Hate and vitriol".
