What Kind Of Day Has It Been

  • The Obama Administration released its proposed FY 2012 budget. Mark Halperin gives big billing to Palin's two paragraph response to the 200 page document--which dropped just 5 hours after the budget's release--perhaps saying more about Halperin than Palin.

  • Oil continued its month-long slide. WTI is now about $9 off its nearly $93 high at the end of January.

  • Shirley Sherrod is suing Andrew Breitbart.

  • Moderate unrest in Iran has caught a lot of attention in the Washington Post and the New York Times. The level of interest is interesting when you consider the relative disinterest at the beginning of unrest in Egypt more than three weeks ago or the beginning of unrest in Tunisia in December. Receiving less coverage are the waves being made by the Palestinian Authority, whose cabinet today resigned en masse. In Libya, a joke going around is that Qaddafi has banned Fridays because both the Tunisian and Egyptian revolutions culminated on Fridays.
