Dick Lugar vs. Richard Mourdock: A Clear Choice

A CLEAR CHOICE: In the Indiana Republican primary, voters will have a choice between party and country. A choice between Dick Lugar -- and a guy who said "The time for being collegial is past, it's time for confrontation." As Dana Milbank notes, "That's not just wrong; it's unpatriotic." Dana Milbank for The Washington Post: Taking out Dick Lugar

WORRIED ABOUT THE LAME DUCK: Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN) is concerned a zombie Congress will destroy Washington in December. Members of Congress who retire or lose reelection will be forced to make decisions wiith large implications to avoid a 'Taxmageddon.' Zombies? Armageddon? Must be 2012: Joshua Green for The Boston Globe: Zombie Congress

BOOK REVIEW: Check out our book review "The House: A History of the House of Representatives," and see how the history of the House has changed over the years: Ed Stewart for the No Labels Blog: Book Review of "The House: A History of the House of Representatives"

STAT OF THE DAY: The jobs numbers came out yesterday -- and while the unemployment rate decreased form 8.2 percent to 8.1 percent, the change largely came from a lack of people searching for work. These numbers will be used as campaign fodder. In reality, they should be used as fodder to create good policy: Mark Lander for The New York Times: Job Numbers Become Instant Campaign Fodder

    The Senate Parliamentarian decided that last summer's deal on the debt ceiling and spending caps does not preclude the Senate from taking up other budget resolutions this year. The POLITICO story says: "The ruling could force vulnerable Democrats to cast tough votes that hurt them in November, a situation Reid and other leaders are eager to avoid as they work to protect their fragile majority." Seriously?!
