Lunch Buffet

Feeling queasy today, so you can have my share of the blue plate special. Here’s a taste:

* Very little MSM coverage of Occupy May Day activities. Went on Twitter to check out buzz and was informed it’s “over-capacity.” Reuters has an early report from New York that doesn’t indicate there is much going on. Here’s a preview from MSNBC.

* Nate Silver rates Dick Lugar a slight underdog in next week’s Indiana Senate primary, and suggests Dem Joe Donnelly would have decent shot against Richard Mourdock.

* Bloomberg playing his cards? NY mayor meets with Romney few days after sit-down with Biden and Panetta.

* Obama’s April average in Gallup tracking of job approval was 47%, highest since last May.

* Screaming headlines and actual facts in conservative accounts of SEAL doubts about Obama taking credit for killing of Osama don’t seem to be in much agreement.

And in non-political news:

* Beckhams’ 9-month-old daughter offered fashion gig.

I’ll be back shortly.
