Good Stuff Elsewhere on the Site

Much as I hope you enjoy reading Political Animal, there is a lot of other good stuff regularly appearing on the Washington Monthly’s site. Here are a few worth checking out:

* Joshua Tucker discusses the relationship between Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. Maybe it’s actually a good idea for them to stay in the race.

* Andrew Sabl takes another look at Alec MacGillis’s New Republic article on why hedge fund managers have turned fiercely against President Obama. It turns out the very rich use some interesting arguments to justify capitalism.

* Jonathan Bernstein meditates on the history of C-SPAN. It seems inevitable now but it didn’t have to happen, and it didn’t have to be a good as it is.

* I examined how federal budget cuts will make it much more difficult for poor students to take the Advanced Placement examinations they take to be admitted to (and receive scholarships for) college. The cuts will save about $17 million, which means it has virtually no impact on the total budget.
