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

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.

Glenn Beck’s Agenda 22: Electric Boogaloo — Even his most fervent detractors must admire Glenn Beck's prolixity. He fills four hours of his online network's broadcast schedule. He gives speeches and oversees a men's clothing-and-beard-oil line. He has written or co-written over a dozen non-fiction books in the past sixyears. He has also written (or co-written), as of this month, six novels.

Glenn Beck Is Now Selling Hipster Clothes. Really. — What do you think of when I say "conservative fashion"? Do you think of power suits for men and knee-covering skirts for women? Do you think of Sarah Palin's bump-it and bedazzled denim? Dad jeans? Comb-overs and cowboy boots? The Duggars' prairie-style burkas?

Jackie’s Friends Dispute U-VA Story — REALLY CONFUSING The friends of "Jackie," the young woman featured prominently in Sabrina Rubin Erdely's Rolling Stone article on rape at the University of Virginia, tell a different account of the night she was allegedly raped-and say the magazine never contacted them.

Scott Walker: Too Boring to Beat — The Scott Walker Election Night party was over so quickly, there was still beer left. Revelers, if you could call the sedate suburbanite attendees that, left half-empty plastic cups in neat little formations around the edges of the stage and just 30 minutes after Walker walked off, only the press corps and the clean-up crew were left.

What Al Franken’s Normcore Senate Race Can Teach Other Democrats — Observers have noted that Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) has made strenuous efforts to distinguish his second career as a politician from his previous stint as a comedian by being as boring and staid as possible . So no wonder that the snippy exchanges that characterized Sunday's debate between Franken and Republican challenger Mike McFadden was described in the media as a "free-for-all."
