What Kind Of Day Has It Been

Intergalactic
International
  • Hama, a Syrian city famous for a brutal crackdown nearly 30 years ago, has reportedly slipped out of the Syrian government's control.
  • Moody's downgraded Portugal.
  • A potential deal in Yemen that would allow Saleh to retain power has been torpedoed. Saleh has yet to return to Yemen since his flight to Saudi Arabia last month.
  • Qaddafi sort of offered to give up power today. Obviously his grip on power is weakening, while his grip on reality remains about as strong as ever.

Domestic
  • Sarah Huckabee is on the ground in Iowa for Pawlenty.
  • VP Biden now tweets--or at least, a staffer tweets in his guise.
