Lunch Buffet

After slow start this morning, things moving along briskly now. Here are some midday delectations:

* Atrios doesn’t get into politics of QE3, but not crazy about pumping more money into financial sector.

* At MoJo, Adam Serwer has a good recap of all the events surrounding attacks on U.S. embassies and consulates in Middle East.

* Dionne column suggests elections here and in Europe battle over which parts of 1950s can be brought back.

* Sarah Palin makes an anatomically specific criticism of Obama’s “stick.”

* Deal seems near to end Chicago teacher’s strike.

And in sorta non-political news:

* City College of San Francisco facing bankruptcy.

Back in a bit to regular blogging.
