Don’t know exactly what’s going on, but it’s hard to recall a day when there were so many vast articles popping up in the aggregator. I was planning on doing my eleventh post on a Rod Dreher piece on “religious liberty” I ran across at The American Conservative, but the damn thing just goes on and on. Maybe I’ll get to it tomorrow.
Here are some remains of the day:
* At the Atlantic, David Graham asks and answers why Rahm Emanuel is likely going to win another term as mayor tomorrow.
* Greg Sargent notes Obama’s “sales pitch” on Iran deal aimed almost entirely at Democrats.
* Very funny Alexandra Petri piece on rejected Rand Paul ’16 slogans. My favorite: “Rand Paul: He’s Not Ron Paul, Unless You Liked Ron Paul, In Which Case He Totally Is Ron Paul.”
And in sorta non-political news:
That’s it for Monday. Let’s close with one more Merle Haggard song that pulls together some classic country themes: he’s begging his inamorata not to marry some other dude while he’s in prison for stealing the engagement ring she wanted.
