Tuesday open thread


Filed Under Open Thread on Jun 26 

Today marks the latest Tea Party test, this time in Utah where Sen. Orrin Hatch faces a challenge from Dan Liljenquist. Polls suggest Hatch will survive easily. Anyone see an upset? Speaking of upset, it would be fun to be in the elevator next time Senators Lee and Hatch find themselves face to face.

Also on the ballot today, Charlie Rangel, the third longest-serving member of Congress and a man who probably deserves jail time more than another term. Could he pull it out in a five-way primary?

Also today, the NYT wonders whether Obama is setting or following course and Hugh Hewitt takes on two common charges against Pawlenty as a Veep contender.
