Day’s End and Night Watch

* Ex-Mossad director says Romney op-ed on Iran making situation on the ground much worse. Thanks, Mitt.

* Josh Marshall says surge in support for Newt (!) will be significant factor in returns tonight.

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer compares two studies of student loan debt, and declares one (that was touted by Wall Street Journal) highly misleading.

* Politico‘s James Hohmann profiles Ron Paul’s caucus-focused Super Tuesday campaign.

* Legislative auditor in LA estimates $3 billion loss in state revenues due to corporate subsidies over five year period.

And in non-political but urgent news:

* Michigan man sues AMC Theater over movie snack prices.

Tonight we can all watch Super Tuesday results, beginning at 7:00 p.m. EST. I’ll have full analysis tomorrow, even if that involves watching pointless Gingrich victory statement from GA.
