Obama marked the end of combat in Iraq yesterday in an event which is about as anti-climatic as you can get in something that includes "President" "War" and "Ending." Iraq is just kinda puttering to an end, with a long slow withdrawal that really satisfies no one and get no one excited. "No Drama" being the watchword of this Administration, even in matters of war and not war (peace is a little too much to say in a Country where care bombs still go off.)
Oh, and Lisa Murkowski has conceded up in Alaska. Whatever else the tea party is, it is very good at knocking off conservative Republicans in primaries and replacing them with extra-conservative challengers.
