What Kind Of Day Has It Been

International
  • Former President of Tunisia Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali was sentenced to 35 years in absentia today. Several weeks ago, The Economist ran an article discussing the effects of the now-limited countries of refuge for former dictators. 

  • Yemen struggles to retake Zinjibar as protests continued in Sana'a.

  • And Robert Chesney now accepts that the War Powers Act applies to the Libyan Intervention.


Domestic
  • Anthony Weiner formally submitted his resignation to the House of Representatives.

  • McKinsey was forced to back away from its claims that the Affordable Care Act would cause employers to drop insurance coverage today, conceding that the study was "not predictive."

  • And America's descent into Whig Liberalism (as opposed to Civic Republicanism) is complete.
