Suitably Flip is one of my go-to blogs when fiscal policy comes up, so I scooted over there this morning to see what Flip had rounded up on the person nominated to replace retiring Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan. Flip's got a starting volley on that subject at Greenspan Successor Imminent, which he's updated with information on Ben Bernanke, the man put forward by President Bush.

In The Usury Suspects, he looks at the DNC's new branded Visa card "with an APR as high as 29.99% (the default rate for missed payments) and as high as 23.99% for normal balances." In New York Times Endorses Bloomberg he notes that the New York Times and Newsday are both endorsing Republican Mayor Michael Bloomberg for re-election.
Last but not least, Flip attended "Blog Row" in Washington. Posts here, here, here, among others. I suspect he'll have more to come.
