Annotations & Elucidations We Post. You Decide.

Since we had a long edition yesterday, here's a brief digest of all that's fit to post. Of particular note are the three pieces in Analysis. More coverage, by John McCormack of The Weekly Standard, on Creigh Deeds' hypocrisy on the homosexual special rights issue; and Michael Barrone of the Washington Examiner and Rosalind Helderman of the Washington Post duke it out over the Post's coverage of Bob McDonnell. We post the columns, you decide.
