A Senate resolution to honor the late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has been gutted by Democratic staffers on the Foreign Relations Committee.
Lots of dribs and drabs to talk about today.
The Senate's top Republican, Mitch McConnell, wants an FBI investigation into a recording made of him and his staff talking about the mental health of actress Ashley Judd, a one-time potential political rival.
Coming up next: a political Battle of Armageddon over repealing Obamacare. The Republicans are attempting to take the majority in the Senate. The Democrats ambitiously wish to take the majority in the House. All hangs on about two dozen races.
Among the many very nice comments I got for Wednesday's MULLINGS (Our Talking Points Society) was a reader who asked (in essence) "If Fox News Channel is so far ahead of MSNBC and CNN why did the GOP lose the Presidential election last Fall?"
Ashley Judd says she won't run for U.S. Senate in Kentucky against Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. The actress made the announcement in a Twitter message.
Sequester talks continue to heat up in Washington as parties determine the best course of action.

What's this? Joe Biden in weekend conversation with Mitch McConnell over how to step back from the fiscal cliff? Isn't Biden the man in charge of solving The Gun Problem? How does he have the time or energy -- not least the ideas -- to launch another rescue mission?
As of Eight PM Eastern Time last night the Senate had adjourned without having a Fiscal-Cliff-Avoiding bill to vote on.
