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

On Sunday, we talked about:

* Corporate profits are reaching all-time highs. Incomes are reaching all-time lows. This just won’t do.

* What has Newt Gingrich done for the 13 years since he left Congress? He’s overseen an odd “business conglomerate.”

* Bill Clinton was rather candid about what it takes to win a Republican presidential primary.

* Nicholas Kristof takes stock of President Obama’s accomplishments and urges voters to be reasonable.

* By Mitt Romney’s standards on context, he threatened to “hang” the president.

* The Gingrich campaign was no doubt thrilled to get the endorsement of the Union Leader in New Hampshire.

On Saturday, we talked about:

* If Republicans didn’t want tax increases in the super-committee deal, they shouldn’t want tax increases in the fight over extending the payroll break.

* The GOP has grown a little too fond of the “wet blanket” metaphor.

* Whether they like it or not, Republicans came up with the massive defense cuts “trigger.” If they don’t like it now, they have no one to blame but themselves.

* Al Qaeda has been utterly decimated.

* In “This Week in God,” we covered, among other things, far-right complaints about Thanksgiving turkeys that conservatives fear might be secret Muslims.

* We’re getting a better sense of what Gingrich meant by a “humane” immigration policy.

And on Friday, we talked about:

* Far-right complaints about the president’s Thanksgiving address are absurd.

* If Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback’s (R) office is worked up about random tweets from teenagers, it needs a new hobby.

* Americans Elect no doubt has its heart in the right place. It’s still a waste.

* The stimulus worked.

* As evidenced by his super-committee conduct, Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) just isn’t a good senator.

* If the Obama administration backpedals on contraception access, it’ll be making a big mistake.

* Romney’s defense for his dishonest ad is simply incoherent.
