On a day when Seymour Hersh and Mark Halperin are both in the news, we must acknowledge political journalism’s in a strange place.
Here are some remains of the day:
* Danny Vink notes Obama’s right in calling Elizabeth Warren a politician, but wrong in suggesting that’s the motive for her challenge to him on TPP.
* Masha Gessen discusses the ever-changing meeting of Victory Day in Moscow. More about that tomorrow, I think.
* George Zimmerman shot (not mortally) in alleged road rage incident. How many of you are accidentally involved in so many violent incidents? The man needs to stay at home.
* Clinton aides tell reporters Bill will stay off the campaign trail. Until he’s needed, of course.
* HHS clarifies that all kinds of birth control included in ACA health insurance mandate, whether or not wingnuts call them “abortifacients.”
And in non-political news:
* Today’s the 51st anniversary of the last episode of the Twilight Zone.
That’s it for Monday. We’ll close with an Animals performance we’ve featured earlier with a different song. Here they are at the New Music Express event a half-century ago with “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood.”
