Deace’s Daily Top Three – February 16th, 2011

In Humor, Iowa Politics, National Politics on February 15, 2011 at 11:49 pm

The top three stories that have captured my attention the past 24 hours:

Equal Time…Since we suggested the coverage the Democrat-leaning Washington Post gave to CPAC earlier this week, it’s only fair to give similar recognition to a Republican mouthpiece when it does an equally decent job covering the same story. Craig Robinson at The Iowa Republican did some really solid analysis of what’s happened to CPAC and what happened to those who were there that is definitely worth a read.

Freudian slip?…In discussing his latest crappy budget at a press conference on Tuesday, President Barack Obama accidentally let slip the “s-word” when he meant to say “share.” The subconscious is a terrible thing to waste.

Only in Iowa…There may not be a state in the union that loves aging incumbents more than Iowa does. Case in point, The Des Moines Register reports that Governor-for-Life Terry Branstad has been around so long he’s eligible to collect both a six-figure salary as the state’s chief executive as well as his pension for his previous decades of public office at the same time.

  1. Yup, Obama’s slip up is already on youtube.
