FRIDAY’S MINI-REPORT…. Today’s edition of quick hits:
* Wall Street loves Tim Geithner.
* Fortunately, Attorney General Michael Mukasey, who collapsed last night during a speech to the Federalist Society in Washington, was released from the hospital today and was given “a clean bill of health.”
* Clinton aides are still describing reports that she’s accepted the Secretary of State job as “premature.”
* GM is giving up some of its private jets. Good move.
* The Coleman-Franken race keeps getting closer. The margin is now reportedly in
single double digits.
* Joe Scarborough, in the height of media irresponsibility, is raising bogus questions about the legitimacy of the vote in Minnesota.
* Despite what some far-right bloggers may want you to believe, gun owners can and will work in the Obama administration.
* Buried glaciers on Mars? Very cool. (thanks to R.K. for the tip)
* I’m sorry to hear that Salon is cutting its staff.
* The odd indictment against Dick Cheney and Alberto Gonzales in southern Texas has managed to get a little more unusual, culminating in the local district attorney screaming at the judge in open court.
* Did talk radio kill conservatism? Nate Silver has a fascinating piece on the difference between “stimulating” political discourse and “persuasive” political discourse.
Anything to add? Consider this an open thread.
