You can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.

The Truth Behind Ted Cruz’s Lies — Oh happy day-freshman Texas Senator Ted Cruz is set to announce that he's running for president. And he's not going to announce at the Alamo or any other defiant Texas-type monument. He's making a pilgrimage straight to the birthplace of the Moral Majority, the Jerry Falwell-founded Liberty University.

The presidential primary debate 2.0 — On Wednesday night, the Republican candidates for president will meet on stage at the Ronald Reagan Library in California for a ritual that makes democracy look idiotic. In front of a television audience that would be much better-off watching almost anything else, the candidates will "debate" each other.

Hillary’s Frank Underwood Mystique

Thank God, I Was Wrong: What I Learned From Opening Up About My Faith — When I sat down to write my piece about finding Christ, I felt I had two major obstacles to overcome. First: fear that other, more conservative and theologically learned Christians would tell me that I was not one of them. The second hurdle: My ego.

Scott Walker’s Second Choice Strategy — Headline writers can be forgiven for needing to look past "PAUL WINS STRAW POLL" for a fresh angle in writing about the Conservative Political Action Conference's least surprising outcome. One Paul or another has won CPAC for five or the past six years-Rand since 2013, Ron in 2010 and 2011.

Why I’m Coming Out as a Christian — Who do I need to prove my faith to-and why should I try? I've lately observed conservatives questioning Obama's faith with more than professional interest. Because if Obama's not Christian, what does that make me? I have not been public about my faith.

CPAC's Bleeding-Heart Conservative — Conservatives who hope to distance themselves from the whackadoodlier elements of CPAC often refer to the conference as a sideshow. But this year, the sideshow has a sideshow: not a more extreme iteration, but an ideological double negative. Down the hall from the main stage, there's a three-day 9-to-5 "activist bootcamp" going on.

Sorry, But Clinton’s Inevitably Is Not a Problem — Pundits can't stop snatching Hillary's defeat from the jaws of victory, insisting that her commanding lead in the polls is itself a problem.

Ignore the Vaccination Debate! — In the wake of the Disneyland measles epidemic and widespread coverage of childhood vaccine skeptics and holdouts, California's Democratic congressional delegation had what may seem like an obvious and logical reaction. They've introduced legislation to repeal the religious and "personal" exemptions that allow unvaccinated children to enroll in Head Start.

Andrew Sullivan Is Burnt Out? Blogs Are, Too — So I guess Andrew Sullivan is giving up blogging? maxread As the kids say on the interwebs, tl; dr very closely. Reading Sullivan on not blogging was the first time I've read him in a long time. There's a tree-announcing-it's-falling quality to the announcement that says more about the form than Sullivan.
