Revenge of the Evangelicals  —  Remember how evangelicals had "matured"?  Remember how the war on terror had replaced social issues?  It shouldn't be hard, since all those things were being said a couple of weeks ago (heck, still being said maybe even a few days ago).

David Kurtz / Talking Points Memo:
A SLIPPERY SLOPE TO A BOMB?  —  Fred Thompson provides his take (warning: could cause drowsiness ) on the Iran NIE over at RedState.  I can't really make out what his point is.  It's a hawkish point of view with some attempts at statesmanlike "perspective."
