Sorry for the slow blogging today; we had a power outage here at Plain Blog World Headquarters this morning (on top of a messed up night last night, as those who noted the time stamp on the Watergate post might have noticed), and next thing you know I hadn't actually wound up with anything to put here.
I'll try to get back later with a baseball post...we'll see. Meanwhile, I wrote an Ignore Those Polls! post about the House Republicans and issue polling on the debt limit over at Greg's place. That episode reminded me of Newt and Luntz in 1994/1995, but yesterday I suggested that perhaps, following that model, the 113th Congress might be not as awful as the 112th.
Meanwhile, at PP, I argued today that there really is a potentially solid compromise on filibuster reform.Yes, Superbill! gets a mention.
