Here at the most distant gate available at ATL, preparing for a five-hour flight, I’m rarin’ to go home. But here are some final items of this maddening day:
* Like Dylan Matthews, Matt Yglesias sees potential doom in our constitutional system.
* An equally sunny Jonathan Chait predicts a debt default.
* Josh Marshall says don’t count on “moderate” Republicans to save the day: they never show up.
* Sarah Kliff looks at the enrollment “glitches” and adjuges them as primarily due to high demand for information–and insurance.
* At Ten Miles Square, Jonathan Bernstein sees no evidence Boehner is dragging House GOP into a fight they don’t want.
And in non-political news:
* Vermont man pleads guilty to stealing cards and letters written by Robert Frost, and gets by with $100 fine.
That’s it for today. Let’s close on a more hopeful note, with (once again) Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush performing “Don’t Give Up.”
