MONDAY’S MINI-REPORT…. Today’s edition of quick hits:
* Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, still not happy with Israel.
* Google gives up on China.
* President Obama will reportedly sign the first phase of health care reform into law tomorrow morning, around 11:15 a.m. (ET). He’ll also hit the road this week, appearing in Iowa City to help promote the new law.
* Leading far-right voices did not respond well to yesterday’s historic breakthrough.
* On a related note, Tea Party protestors not only threw around racist and anti-gay slurs, they also used offensive language towards at least one Hispanic lawmaker.
* Sarabeth ponders the efficacy of Stupak’s strategizing.
* It was largely overshadowed by health care developments, but a huge crowd protested in support of immigration reform in D.C. yesterday. President Obama addressed the crowd via a videotaped message.
* As a national entity, ACORN is no more.
* Horse trading on student loan reform.
* Jane Mayer makes Marc Thiessen look even more ridiculous.
* Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.) is just not a serious person.
* I’m a big fan of Dave Weigel’s reporting, and I was delighted to learn today that he’s headed to the Washington Post. The Independent‘s loss is the Post‘s gain, and I wish him all the best in the new gig.
* Can we start helping Rush Limbaugh pack?
* And I feel a little awkward about mentioning this, but I wanted Andrew Sabl to know how much I appreciate his post about my health care-related efforts. His item means a great deal to me.
