Day’s End and Night Watch

Ah yes, another week in the can, and next week I get to re-experience the joy of night-time live-blogging! But there are a few more items today:

* Michelle Goldberg looks with great disgust as the latest anti-Obama “documentary,” this one claiming POTUS is the illegitimate son of a Communist.

* Todd Akin categorically comes out against any sort of employment discrimination laws as abrogation of free enterprise.

* TNR’s Nate Cohn looks at polls showing Nevada as very close.

* At Ten Miles Square, Mark Kleiman evaluates the ads exploiting Romney’s Boca Moment.

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer suggests a tax-return-based matching fund for college savings.

That’s all for the day and the week. Joing the Weekend Blogging rotation tomorrow Blogging will be Simon van Zuylen-Wood, who contributed the article “The Clintonintes’ Beef with Obama” for our September/October issue. Please welcome Simon warmly.

See you fine folks on Monday.
