Monday briefing: anchor giggles on pot law; GOP should become more “modern,” not “moderate”

Good Morning.

 

U.S. Rep Cathy McMorris Rodgers joins the soul-searching: McMorris Rodgers of Spokane, rising star  of the U.S. House, told CNN Sunday  that the Republican Party, now licking its considerable wounds from last week’s election, should become more “modern” not more “moderate,” as it figures out what went wrong and right in the 2012 campaign. She also called last week’s election a “status quo”   event.

Sen. Patty Murray of Washington and the fiscal cliff: Washington Sen. Patty Murray spent some time this weekend on the national talk shows. She took a very hard line on the looming fiscal cliff, telling ABC’s This Week that Congress should simply let the tax cuts expire if Republicans won’t bargain on taxing the wealthiest Americans.  

Washington and Colorado’s pot law cracks up TV anchors.  I know, I know. Jon Stewart fans saw this clip last week. But just in case you missed it. He has a pretty funny take on how silly the TV news anchors became describing the passage of the new laws.

Some clear-eyed lessons from Election 2012. Polls,  speaking, debates.
