- Cynics, do not read: There is no greater hypocrisy on the part of both parties than how they treat the “cut” versus “restraining the rate of growth” dichotomy. My high capacity for sanity is severely tested on this matter.
- There’s still a big difference on the pure politics of the Medicare fight (putting aside the merits for a moment): Democrats are sure they can win in the end; Republicans are hopeful, but far from certain they will prevail. And some GOPers still believe it can cost them the election, despite Boston’s push.

- Big question that puts the media on Romney’s side: Will the Republican ticket’s Monday town meeting at St. A’s in the Manchester Metroplex put more pressure on the President to take real questions from real journalists anytime soon?
- Biden and Ryan are getting a lot of attention now; let’s see if they still are holding the floor come Labor Day.
- I’m surprised: still no Obama Medicare ad.

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
