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

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.

GOP Summit-The Good, The Bad And The Absolutely Crazy — You're going to read a lot of analysis of this weekend's Freedom Summit as the unofficial beginning of the Iowa caucus. Whether that's true depends entirely on how many of those who attended are still standing one long year from now-and how many of those who didn't attend (Jeb Bush, Rand Paul) have campaigns that are still alive and well.


Palin’s Performance Art — Uncorrected closed caption transcript, just cut-and-pasted from C-SPAN. It seems to lack an ending but otherwise pretty good window into the madness. I THANK YOU SO MUCH. IT IS SO GREAT TO BE BACK IN IOWA. WE HAVE GREAT MEMORIES HERE. MANY TRIPS THAT WE HAVE BEEN BLESSED TO TAKE HERE.

Freedom Forum Sked — It's like a crazy club sandwich with a cocktail of hate! 10:53am: Ben Carson 11:17am: Donald Trump noon: Scott Walker 1:24pm: Newt Gingrinch 2:12pm: Rick Santorum 2:36pm: John Bolton 3pm: Ted Cruz 3:58pm: Sarah Palin 4:22pm Rick Perry 4:46pm: Chris Christie 5:06pm: Mike Huckabee Overall sked here.
