Immigration, FinReg, and oil spills, oh my! With no one story dominating
the news cycle, Twitter power players applied their typical wit to
myriad topics today.
Markos Moulitsas takes a shot at George Will and the Washington Post:
The WaPo op-ed page would like Latino writers, but they can't find any who aren't washing dishes and mowing lawns. http://is.gd/bLKLP
Mother Jones' Kate Sheppard makes creative use of Twitter's hashtags:
The Coast Guard is lighting a giant oil spill on fire down in the Gulf, while Salazar announces approval of Cape Wind. #howsthatfortiming
At Politico, Jonathan Martin finds common ground between two opposing political powerhouses:
For all their diffs, Obama and Palin do share a contempt for media they frequently like to express.
Ezra Klein shows off his fashion knowledge:
Bill Clinton is wearing the reddest tie I've ever seen. It looks like it's from another planet.
...but Brian Beutler counters:

Dave Weigel smells nostalgia in Gordon Brown's hot-mic moment:

Finally, New York Daily News reporter Michael McAuliff sums up the insanity of the day:
