Budget day 2 – Entitled, elitist fish refuse to be sustainable – Kelly Ayotte: Awesome idea

I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW FISH COULD BE ELITIST:Scott Brown’s hit upon a winning strategy in this election: complaining about those jerks at Whole Foods. His challenger Elizabeth Warren is up to her own strategy: complaining about those jerks at student loan lenders.

AND THROUGH YOU TO YOUR FOLLOWERS: The House began debating the state budget yesterday, as you may have heard. A number of members are tweeting up a storm for almost every amendment. There’s also been astute media tweeting going on.

COLUMN INCHES: The columnists are active this morning, with Lucas on the Secret Service scandal, McMorrow telling us how bad the housing market continues to be and, uh, what the hell is Battenfeld talking about? Seriously?
