MORNING HEADLINES: Spud Wars

Posted By on Tue, Jul 26, 2011 at 8:00 AM

Butch Otter v. Science – After a scientific study indicated that eating too many potatoes regularly could lead to weight gain, Idaho Gov. Butch Otter fired back an an op-ed disputing such an notion. (SR)

No fire – A statewide burn ban has gone in effect for Washington on state-owned land, forcing us to make S’mores on our oven ranges instead. (KREM)

Mariners continue sinking – The good news: The Mariners are back in the headlines. The bad: It’s for breaking their own personal record of 14 losses in a row. At 15, however, they’re still considerably behind the Philadelphia Phillies’ 23 game losing streak. But if they put their minds to it, work hard, and believe in themselves, that record, too, is within their grasp. (KXLY)

The default danger tango -- President Obama and Speaker John Boehner both gave speeches on the importance of raising the debt ceiling last week, but did so requesting very different plans to address the deficit. You can probably guess which used the phrase “wealthiest Americans” and which used the phrase “blank check.” (NYT)
