- Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu was uncompromising in a speech to AIPAC yesterday on Iran. There's a lot of people eager to blow something up in Iran, but no talk of the day after. Mitt Romney has a plan, which sounds a lot what Obama is doing, but he's calling it something different. It's like Romneycare redux. Meanwhile, Iran will allow IAEA inspectors to visit a military site.
- Attorney General Holder spells out how U.S. citizens can be killed by their government if they're associating with the wrong people. Oh, and the decision to kill you doesn't get reviewed by a court. Now due process is perhaps too cumbersome after a zombie apocalypse, but we aren't there yet.
- Eastern Libya's tribal leaders have declared themselves semi-autonomous from the rest of the state.
- A Saudi diplomat was shot and killed in Dhaka, Bangladesh today.
- It's Super Tuesday, which everyone agrees won't be that super because this race is going to drag on, but still NPR gives you four things to watch. And Romney is winning, but only by spending metric tons of cash on negative ads about his opponents. Increasingly with Gov. Romney, I get the sense that he wants to be president for the promotion, not for any deeper political goal. That's not to say he'd be a bad president, but if you're animated by the desire to succeed, will you remain animated after you've won?
- Rush Limbaugh's mouth is causing his pocket book pain in the wake of him declaring a Georgetown law student a "slut" and a "prostitute" because she'd have the temerity to suggest insurance should cover contraception, even if that insurance is backed by a religious institution.
