Short Takes

The G20 meeting was not a rousing success.

President Obama opposes a permanent extension of the Bush tax cuts for the rich. (Notice he said “permanent.”)

The House Democrats have avoided a leadership battle.

Meanwhile, the GOP is still battling it out over earmarks.

Give it up, Joe: The count in the Alaska senate race looks to be going to Lisa Murkowski.

Too soon: The Supreme Court turns down an appeal on DADT, telling the plaintiffs to wait until the lower courts have finished ruling.

Hang on to your boats and motors, South Florida.

The pink snails are coming.

Tropical Update: There’s something brewing down near Panama.
