Okay, we all know there's only question that really matters today: Who is your next... American... Idol?!

Lippmann's Ghost: On how what Romney did at Bain is well worth exploring.

Thump and Whip: On whether Romney should embrace his Richie Rich persona.

The Impolitic: On the ridiculous "Obama is a big spender" lie.

Mario Piperni: On gays, the supposed sanctity of marriage, and ickiness.

Gin and Tacos: On how Bill Kristol is wrong about everything, again.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction (@mjwstickings). I'll be here all week.
