I want to thank Martin Bashir and Richard Wolff who worked tirelessly

to get truth out there and taught some of their coworkers a little bit about the role of the Fifth Estate in setting the historical record. I really appreciate their sharp intelligent commentary, which is always fact intensive and spot on. We are fortunate to count them as fellow citizens.

2. Martin Bashir has been on a warpath...

...and Richard Wolffe is his chief of staff.

Martin is now my favorite MSNBC talking head

3. Martin Bashir today on Boner's speech: "Is he deaf?"

Bashir was commenting on the fact that Boner today said he would favor ending loopholes and "reforming" the tax code a la Paul Ryan but not raising even one percentage of taxes on the rich. Bashir asked whether Boner was deaf and didn't realize the people repudiated Romney's and Ryan's plan, one that Boner is still pushing as the only solution he'll accept.

4. I like that he's also saying that Dems should not be tiptoeing around trying to be decorous

and respectful of the Rs losses. We should own it and be proud of the mandate.

Loved Jonathan Capeheart's "Bye" to Allen West.

5. It is interesting that they are both Englishmen.

At least I think Richard Wolff is English.

6. Bashir is an Englishman too. They are both

American citizens now. I love that they use British journalistic approaches here sometimes.

7. I knew Bashir was originally British

I wasn't sure if Wolff was English or Aussie.
