Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

Today Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) agreed there is no scientific debate on the earth being roughly 4.5 billion years old, adding “I was referring to a theological debate.” As one TPM commenter put it, “We’re talking about the difference between actual sports and fantasy sports.” Meanwhile, Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) rejected any debt ceiling increase not tied to “real structural reforms [to] Social Security and Medicare.” President Obama replied “I will not play that game.” Given the 2012 election results, is this about fantasy politics vs. real politics?
