November 29, 2013 12:56 PM Lunch Buffet

By Ed Kilgore

I have some family medical logistical issues to handle during the next couple of hours, so I’m going ahead with a Lunch Buffet for this Lite Blogging Day. It’s an appropriately Lite Buffet for the day after Thanksgiving:

* Obamas tell Baba Wawa they might choose to remain in Washington after 2016. Story doesn’t mention possibility of Michelle Obama holding Cabinet position in HRC admnistration.

* In more substantial First Family news, Obamas visit immigration protestors fasting on National Mall.

* Daily Beast deserves kudos for headline on Eleanor Clift column on possible holiday-season cuts in SNAP funding: “The GOP’s Hunger Games.”

* WaPo’s David Ignatius outlines next steps in negotiations with Iran.

* At TNR the estimable duo of Henry Aaron and Harold Pollack suggest it’s a bad time for single-payer told-you-so’s from liberals.

And in non-political news:

* Another year, another upredictable Egg Bowl, this one won by Mississippi State in overtime.

As we break for lunch, here’s another George Harrison tune, about gossip: “The Devil’s Radio.”
