Follow the Money

Seems like everything in my Reader this morning is about who gains/loses from the inglorious  of the super committee. Here's a GOP Congressman on how the Super Committee failed because the Dems refused to privatize Medicare.   Here's   Jia Lynn Yang on how failure jeopardizes payroll tax cut, and Rebecca Leber on how the  collapse leaves Big Oil subsidies untouched.  A zillion people are telling you that the "failure" wasn't a failure at all--that it was bound to happen, that it's good for the President, whatever. Meanwhile, you get the sense that defense cuts and an end to  unemployment benefits just ain't gonna happen.

Oh, and this just in: pepper is a vegetable.  Apparently so is ketchup, but opinions are divided on pizza.
