Silver lining for GOP; Politics and Prose on SNL; and a temporary congressman (read-this roundup)


New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie: among the reasons Republicans should take heart. (Mel Evans - AP)
Here’s what the Loop is reading Monday morning:

Cheer up, GOP — Some silver lining for downtrodden Republicans: the Fix tells you why things aren’t so bad, after all.

Funny pages — C-SPAN is probably used to the SNL treatment by now, but this weekend, local favorite Politics and Prose bookstore took a turn on the show, with a skit set at Paula Broadwell’s book reading.

Low marks — Morale problems persist at DHS.

Just passin’ through — A blink-and-you-might-miss-him congressman fills a partial (make that six weeks) term.

Onion headline writes itself — Vice President Joe Biden reassures storm-hit New Jersey-ites that he hung out so much on the Jersey Shore that he’s their “homeboy” in the White House.
