Today I did a post over at PP speculating that the nomination process this cycle didn't produce any candidates capable of full opposition research efforts other than Mitt Romney, and as a consequence the usual vetting that goes on in primary campaigns may not have taken place as it normally does.
And I have a couple that I didn't get around to linking yesterday. At Greg's place, I beat up on the Republicans again over the Medicare (provider) cuts in ACA, which again was their lead point during the repeal debate this week, despite that House Republicans included those cuts in their budget resolution.
One more from yesterday: a longish but I hope interesting item about the difficulty in doing predictions in presidential elections. It's hooked around the question of whether Mitt Romney's wealth might hurt him, but it's really more about the broader issue.
