Be in the know: Today's Political Bullet Points

Every day we ask influential politicos to send us their top three bullet points that are driving the day's conversation inside and outside Washington.

RedState.Com Editor Erick-Woods Erickson:

– Operation Odyssey Dawn? I thought she was a dancer in Vegas.

– When will the White House outline its goals in Libya? What is the objective? If Gadhafi stays in power, are we okay with that? Why is the Obama Administration playing catch up on the Middle East?

– I thought women made the world more peaceful. Media reports suggest it was the women in the White House who wanted the fight, not the men.

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

– Scoreless Quarter: Today the GOP House will vote on a resolution to uphold “In God We Trust” as our national motto, this will create as many jobs as the de-funding of NPR, the symbolic vote against health reform, the move against planned parenthood, and the attempt to soften the definition of rape…combined.

– Slam Dunk: The Arizona state legislature stopped its attacks on immigrants last week after sixty local CEOs said the constant bashing was bad for business, demonstrating that the national boycott has worked and tacitly conceding that grassroots immigrant’ rights activists have proved their muscle.

– Team Foul: As America closes public schools, raises college tuition, and contemplates dramatically changing Social Security the Administration launches another multi-million dollar effort in the Middle East.
