FROM THE WEEKEND…. Here’s a recap of what we covered over the weekend:
On Sunday, we talked about…
* Arguments that a Republican majority would be reasonable and open to compromise are very hard to believe.
* The gap between “registered” voters and “likely” voters is the difference between a good Election Day and an awful one.
* Is the Republican establishment giving up on Joe Miller’s Senate campaign in Alaska? Maybe.
* David Broder argued the economy will improve if President Obama prepares for a war with Iran. Seriously.
* ABC News invited right-wing propagandist Andrew Breitbart to be part of the network’s election-night team, and the decision hasn’t gone over well.
* The “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear” packs the D.C. Mall, and features sharp critiques of the media.
And on Saturday…
* Exactly how bad would conditions get in the U.S. in the event of a Republican majority in Congress? Krugman helps paint an ugly picture.
* President Obama uses his weekly address to highlight GOP leaders’ staunch opposition to compromise.
* Sharron Angle might be willing to talk about national security and military policy … but only if she’s elected to the Senate first.
* “This Week in God” was chock full of interesting items.
* Mark Kirk explained his tendency to vote for bills he actually opposes because of his own “ignorance” and a “lack of understanding.”
* A McDonald’s franchise in Ohio is home to one of the more blatant examples of voter-intimidation tactics this year.
* And additional details about the latest attempted terrorist bombing continue to come to light.
