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:

– The economy is tanking again. Can we finally say that maybe this is a failure of Keynesian economics and the government is incapable of creating jobs?

– Why aren't Republican Presidential candidates more vocal about the debt ceiling. Republicans in congress are prepared to fight, but they could use some back up.

– It seems more and more clear that Anthony Weiner sent that picture. His non-denial denials and distractions and failure to ask for an investigation are pretty clear indicators. On CNN, Weiner said he cannot "say with certitude" that the picture was of him. This begs the next logical question, given all the facts we have — exactly how many male semi-pornographic pictures does the man keep on his blackberry?

Senior Editor of Mario Solis-Marich:

– Total Recall: Six recalls of Wisconsin GOP State Senators have been approved for July setting up an intense pregame for 2012 between the union busting GOP and Democrats.

– Collateral Damage: Illinois and New York drop the now scandalous Napolitano "Secure Communities" deportation program as the Denver Mayors race becomes a referendum on it, will Obama now wake up to the Homeland Security Chiefs incompetence on immigration?

– Die Hard: Paul Ryan insists that his Medicare voucher program is not a Medicare voucher program.

Editor’s Note: The blog is a place for a freewheeling exchange of ideas and opinions. CNN does not endorse anything said by its contributors.
