Bits and Pieces - August 3, 2010

Anne Applebaum wants to know specifically what programs those who would cut the national budget would cut.

Bob Inglis (SC, R) is punished for not kowtowing to the Tea Party.

Just how broken is the Senate? De rigeur to link this today, but it really is a good article.

A Republican who isn't stupid or venal: Michael Bloomberg's speech on the Cordoba Society's proposed mosque in New York City. Update: Here's the whole speech. The other was the best I could do at the time.

Steven Walt on nuclear weapons and deterrence.

The New York Times issues a correction.

More on the postponement of the committee vote on New START, from Senator Richard Lugar (IN, R) and McClatchy.

Aurora likely tonight, but probably not for me. The sun has been mysteriously quiet for some time, but it's been frying off some big clouds of particles the last few days. I'll bet we could make this into a disaster story if we tried.
