Lunch Buffet

I know many of you will spend your lunch break beginning to fill out your NCAA brackets, but for everyone else, here are some quick reads:

* Jeff Foxworthy campaigning with Mitt Romney in Mississippi and Alabama today. You might be a Moderate-Mormon-Yankee if you need this, Mitt.

* Justice Department refuses preclearance for Texas voter ID law (as it did with South Carolina’s in December). It all goes to court now.

* Blago goes to the Big House.

* Wish nobody had asked: Gingrich camp denies reports it’s trying to pre-arrange Newt-Perry ticket.

* Quandry for Religious Right Activists: where to focus your outrage? Gary Trudeau’s ultrasound series or GCB?

Back shortly; I’m delaying my brackets until Wednesday.
