Today is Good Friday, a solemn holiday for many of us. So I will curtail blogging a bit this afternoon.
Here are some midday and week-ending news/views items:
* At Weekly Standard, Jeffrey Anderson posts about the 50,000th conservative piece that touts Obamacare’s unpopularity without noting that many who don’t like it want something more “socialistic.”
* Costa/Rucker WaPo item on Mitt Romney’s reemergence quotes one friend as suggesting that Mitt wants to be “the anti-Jim DeMint” within GOP. Well, they could use one, but let’s remember DeMint was a key Mitt endorser in 2008.
* Tea Party Express chair Amy Kremer leaves post to join Matt Bevin campaign in Kentucky. Bringing down the Great White Father Mitch McConnell does seem to be a Tea priority.
* Prospect‘s Paul Waldman comments on the financial arrangements between conservative groups and radio talk show hosts.
* At the New Yorker, Jelani Cobb discusses the mixed legacy of desegregation.
And in non-political news:
* NASA lunar probe crashes into dark side of the moon–as planned.
As we break for lunch, here’s more T-Bone Walker, with “Goin’ to Chicago.”
