Lunch Buffet

Really got into the junk food early today. But I’ll share:

* Palin makes fun of herself on Today show. Should have tried that tactic more often.

* My latest TNR column discusses Romney’s sinking approval ratings.

* Olympia Snowe calls birth control controversy throwback to 1950s. At least that far back.

* Igor Volsky pokes holes in GOP belief that “skin in game” key to health care cost control.

* Evan McMorris-Santoro wonders about disappearance of Bush 43 in 2012 GOP race.

And in non-political news:

* Happy Kentucky fans celebrate NCAA title with Appalachian folk-custom of couch-burning.

Back after I watch Nikki Haley on The View.
