Here’s what the Loop is reading Friday:

Chief spook — John Brennan’s confirmed as the CIA director, with Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) calling the vote “a referendum on the drone program.”

Taking stock — A week into the sequester, and here’s how the federal government is feeling the cuts.

Saddle up — Filibusters don’t just take up time, they take some physical stamina.

And of course, don’t miss the Loop’s nifty updated seating chart showing who sits where in President Obama’s second-term West Wing.
