Lunch Buffet

Running a bit behind today after getting down in the weeds of a Pew survey, but that adds to the stuff available for brief mid-day bites:

* Profiles in Gotham self-regard: Big thumbsucker at Politico about purported Cuomo-Hillary battle for 2016 presidential nomination.

* Poll sponsored by Citizens United (ahem!) says Lugar now trailing Mourdock by five points with twelve days left before the Indiana primary.

* POTUS to make first two “official” re-election campaign appearances on May 5 in Ohio and Virginia.

* Biden raps Romney for having called pursuit of Osama bin Laden not worth the money back in 2007.

* At TAP, Brian Fung offers a take on differences between CISPA and SOPA.

And in non-political news:

Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber to play bit roles as aliens in Men In Black III.

Back to regular blogging shortly.
