What Kind Of Day Has It Been

International
  • Yemen's embattled--and absent--president has reportedly suffered much graver injuries than first reported, casting further doubt on his return. Another Yemeni city has fallen beyond the Saleh government's control, though this time not to AQAP. That said, AQAP is apparently on the verge of capturing a second city.

  • Unbeknownst to most, the violence in Mexico is an armed conflict--a rather serious one, in fact. The gangs are now employing armored vehicles.

  • And NATO ramped up its bombing of Tripoli--launching daytime raids for at least the third time in the last week.

Domestic
  • Weinergate continues. Democrats on the Hill deserve more credit than they are getting for their quick response to Weiner's admission, including the calls for an ethics investigation. And, as Wonkette noted, "[Weiner has] now guaranteed that greasy pustule Andrew Breitbart will never go away, ever." Breitbart, of course, is taking a victory lap--and I guess well he should, even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

  • Dan Boren is out.
