Lunch Buffet

Ah yes, another Lean Cuisine news day. Here are a few scraps I’ve saved for the mid-day meal:

* Market “relief” at the Greek election results lasts no more than a few hours.

* New local media poll in Maine shows indie Angus King with mammoth lead in Senate race, with especially heavy Dem support.

* Nick Baumann at MoJo supplies handy chart illustrating what we already know: GOP primary voters more ideologically uniform than Dem counterparts.

* Via Greg Sargent, at least one GOP strategist, Ed Rollins, admits his party “caught with its pants down” by Obama move on immigration.

* At TNR, I offer rejoinder to Bill Galston’s concerns about Obama “doubling down” on comparative campaign message.

And in non-political news:

* Paul McCartney turns 70. Lord a-mercy.

Back in a very few.
