Alison Lundergan Grimes' 2014 Senate Campaign Is a Disaster

newrepublic.com — It seems like a safe assumption that if you're currently a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate, you voted for Barack Obama two years ago. And if you're a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate who also served as a delegate for Obama at the 2012 Democratic Convention?

Mike Allen's Politico Playbook Dings Obama, Flacks for Cafe Milano

newrepublic.com — "ONE FOR THE BOOKS," Mike Allen writes in this morning's "Playbook" while calling our attention to a New York Post article about Barack Obama's Tuesday night fundraiser: "Obama slams billionaires at the home of a guy named Rich Richman," by N.Y.

Jim Webb for President: Why He's Unlikely to Run in 2016

newrepublic.com — The response from political journalists to yesterday's announcement by Jim Webb that he was "seriously looking" at a 2016 White House run fell into two categories. Among some, there was anticipation and maybe even gratitude, since a Webb presidential campaign would give reporters something to write about other than Hillary Clinton.

Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Has a Terrible Metaphor for Politics

newrepublic.com — Sunday on "Meet the Press," Chuck Todd decreed that the 2014 Senate races aren't about Democrat versus Republican or liberal versus conservative but, rather, coffee versus chicken-or, to borrow Todd's terminology, "Starbucks Nation" versus "Chick-fil-A Country." As Todd explained it, "Starbucks Nation" exists in "big cities" and their "adjacent suburbs" and is populated by Democrats.

Rand Paul's Foreign Policy Evolution: From Isolationist to Realist

newrepublic.com — When it comes to foreign policy, Rand Paul contains multitudes. He was for ending foreign aid to Israel before he was against it-before he was for it again but only after ending foreign aid to lots of other countries first. He was against building a fence along the U.S.-Mexican border before he was for one-and a "double-layered" fence at that.

Jason Zengerle on Rand Paul

gq.com — Not so long ago, Rand Paul -son of Ron, "modern-day revolutionary," and practicing ophthalmologist-would have been written off as a harmless political extremist. For believing that the Federal Reserve should be gutted. Or that the Civil Rights Act was unconstitutional. Or that the Department of Education is un-American.

Meet the Press Executive Producer: The Key to Chuck Todd's Success

newrepublic.com — This Sunday, Chuck Todd will make his debut as moderator of "Meet the Press," having supplanted David Gregory in the role. Todd's ascension (and Gregory's defenestration) comes in the midst of disastrous stretch for the venerable NBC program-during which it's tumbled from first to third place in the Sunday show ratings war.

Profile of Henry Heimlich, Creator of Anti-Choking Maneuver

newrepublic.com — 'A serious matter has been brought to my attention," the letter began. Addressed to an official in the Office for the Protection of Research Subjects at the University of California at Los Angeles, it accused two UCLA medical researchers of participating in illegal human experiments on HIV patients in China.

Michael Brown Shooting: We Know About Racial Profiling But Don't Act

newrepublic.com — For the last 14 years, Missouri officials have been unusually meticulous about keeping track of potential racial profiling in their state. Thanks to a 2000 law passed by the state's general assembly, one of the first of its kind in the nation, Missouri police officers are required to record the age, gender, and race of every driver they pull over, as well as whether they searched, issued a citation to, or arrested the driver.

Bad day for UNC, good day for Dan Kane who, despite what some of my fellow (idiot) Tar Heel fans say, was right that something was rotten.

I wonder if the DSCC went dark in KY just so they could make a big splash going back on air. Kind of like Maverick re-engaging in Top Gun.
