Still struggling with my TPMCafe column; haven’t even had time to watch this week’s BloggingheadsTV episode to see if my weird physical tics have subsided. I do know it was very humid in the room where I was recording, so I took off my Central Coast uniform down vest, which made me feel naked.

Here are some remains of the day:

* Bush/Walker back-and-forth over when they’d kill the Iran Nuke Deal something we’ll probably see a lot of in the months ahead.

* Greg Sargent thinks Hillary Clinton may occupy the tough-enforcement posture on the Iran deal that Republicans would have been smart to preempt.

* At Ten Miles Square, Hans Noel argues the Netroots Nation fracas was just a normal incident in the effort of people with different priorities trying to shape progressive ideology.

* At The Grade, Alexander Russo confesses some continuing issues with WaPo media critic Paul Farhi.

* John Kasich gets the mini-profile treatment from the Atlantic‘s Molly Ball, which probably isn’t a good sign for his prospects. It is, however, her second profile on Kasich.

And in non-political news:

* Apple profits spike as iPhone sales again soar.

That’s it for Tuesday. We’ll close with sort of the ultimate Floyd Jones blues number: “You Can’t Live Long,” recorded in 1952.
