Today in a Nutshell

All the news we were too busy to bring you in one easy post.

GOP governors are going around their Democratic attorney generals to sue the federal government over Obama's intended destruction of the best healthcare system in the world. Governors Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota, Jan Brewer of Arizona, and Jim Gibbons of Nevada are all getting into the act.

Also on that front, several states are pulling together legislation to prohibit abortion coverage in health plans under the bill. Tennessee, Oklahoma, Missouri, Mississippi, Kansas and Arizona are working on bills for that.

Recent polls that caught my eye: 31% still think Bush is to blame for the economy. Democrats in Congress were blamed by 16%, while President Obama was blamed by 14%.

And a record low 28% believe that Congress should be reelected.

Finally, in the "makes you go 'huh'" department, non-shoebombing dunderhead Al Modadi was on his way to Denver to meet with convicted Al Qaeda agent Ali Al-Marri.

This is an open thread; all topics welcome.
