Day’s End and Night Watch

The news cycle gained a bit of speed after all. Here are a few more items:

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer takes a look at Mitt Romney’s list of education policy advisors.

* Alan Simpson freaks out at California senior group in nasty letter. Touchy, touchy. They may not have as secure a retirement as ol’ Alan.

* Erick Erickson accelerates pity party for Nikki Haley, the victim of racist pinata-beating by union thug.

* Obama campaign running early ads in no small part to test their effectiveness.

* Gallup examines Biden’s popularity, finds it a bit weaker than Obama’s.

And in non-political news:

* Iowa man stopped for drunk driving has zebra and parrot in his truck. In the front seat.

Time to run errands. I’ll see you–virtually–bright and early tomorrow.
