The Doubleheader: Shields and Brooks on Supercommittees, Honey Badgers

BY Hari Sreenivasan  November 4, 2011 at 6:15 PM EDT

Now that baseball season is over, where will syndicated columnist Mark Shields and New York Times columnist David Brooks spend their leisure hours? They’ll likely be back to the heavy lifting of political news. In our “sport of politics” section this week we tackle the Super Committee — those dozen members of congress who are tasked with leading the country to a deficit reduction plan. In our “politics of sport” section we tackle the LSU-Alabama matchup this weekend, which features two undefeated SEC teams facing off. For more background check out this story by our friends at NPR.

Later Friday, check back for Shields and Brooks’ analysis from the NewsHour broadcast on our Political Wrap page.
