We covered a fair amount of ground over the weekend. Here’s a quick overview of what you may have missed

On Sunday, we talked about:

* Joe Walsh and Herman Cain might be treated a lot differently if they were on the left instead of the right.

* It increasingly seems as if Republicans have forgotten the meaning of the word “anonymous.”

* House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) occasionally likes to pretend to be a deficit hawk. He’s not very good at it.

* A leading Ohio Republicans believes conservative politicians shouldn’t have to take a pay cut to help with state finances, but other public-sector workers should. There’s a problem with that.

* Herman Cain has decided he doesn’t want to answer any more questions about his sexual-harassment controversies. It really shouldn’t be up to him to decide when the questions end.

And on Saturday, we talked about:

* With a year to go before the 2012 presidential election, I wouldn’t write President Obama’s political obituary just yet.

* Mitt Romney’s campaign isn’t leaving any doubt that it considers Rick Perry, not Herman Cain, the GOP rival it’s worried about.

* If anyone should face impeachment charges in Arizona, it’s probably Gov. Jan Brewer (R).

* In “This Week in God,” we covered, among other things, a controversy in Kentucky, where a Republican presidential candidate is appealing to the anti-Hindu vote.

* EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson jokingly referred to her own employees as “jack-booted thugs” in a speech. Some on the right thought she was talking about them, but she wasn’t.
