This weekend’s Anniversary dinner was great, the Church Rummage Sale was a success, and my Georgia Bulldogs won, so I’m not complaining today, even though being plunged back into midterm politics is a bit of an acid bath.
Here are some midday news/blues treats.
* Dave Weigel touts a Michigan GOP ad as the worst (so far!) of the cycle.
* Obama administration has decided it could suspend sanctions as part of deal with Iran to kill nuclear weapons program without congressional concurrence.
* Sean Trende amplifies Nate Silver’s warnings against making any assumptions polling errors will occur or will “skew” in a particular direction.
* John Judis reviews the winding path to enforcement of Texas’ voter ID law.
* E.J. Dionne discusses the significance of the white working-class vote to Democratic upset efforts in GA and KY.
And in non-political news:
* Another big auto recall, this one from Toyota.
As we break for lunch, here’s Nine Below Zero again, with “Once Twice Three Times Is Enough.”
