Interesting thing about Romney’s just-announced battleground state bus trip: (1) It includes Michigan; if Romney can put his father’s home state in play, it is an Electoral College game changer; (2) all of these states have small towns and rural areas that are not the President’s electoral strength and where Romney can gain an advantage if he runs up the kinds of margins George W. Bush did in 2004; and (3) watch to see if this trip draws network correspondents and/or big-foot print reporters, who, on most every day for the last several months, have been absent from the Romney roadshow. (4) notice what family members and surrogates join the journey and what roles they are assigned.
So we've compared Ukraine-Russia to every conflict known to man except the Dune trilogy. Can someone please get started on that?—

The very active account anonymously curates the latest news surrounding international relations and national security, specifically regarding conflict. The feed, which rarely deviates from tweeting traditional headlines, pulls from hundreds of political, security and intelligence sources to find and tweet the nuggets its followers don’t necessarily know they need to know. The most interaction you’ll have with it is a whole lot of favorites. —Andrew Katz
