Lunch Buffet

In response to those who have kindly inquired, I’m feeling much better today. But my laptop is still dead, so I may struggle a bit until I get back to California on Thursday night.
I’m mainly angry that I wasn’t all over the “Boca Moment” video the second David Corn put it out. But Lord knows it’s not going to be a one-day story, and as always, there’s more to chew over:

* Pennsylvania Supreme Court remands decision upholding the state’s Voter ID law back to lower court for some additional fact-finding. Unclear what that means ultimately, but we’ll know soon.

* Some essential background reading from National Review‘s Ramesh Ponnuru on the whole “47%” myth.

* Chicago teachers union delegates meeting this afternoon to decide whether to halt strike during ratification vote by full membership of proposed new contract.

* Fun tick-tock account of Romney campaign scramble to deal with “Boca Moment” video.

* Egyptian prosecutors initiate criminal proceedings under Egyptian law against Egyptian citizens living in U.S. who were allegedly involved in Innocence of Muslims.

And in non-political news:

* Breaking Bad copy cat? Texas middle-school chemistry teacher busted for cooking meth in parking lot of own school.

Back after a real lunch break.
