A little late on the Day’s End post today because I got distracted counting up the number of years of elected-official experience among the also-rans in the GOP presidential field. I’ll explain tomorrow.
Here are some remains of the day:
* At Iowa State Fair, Marco Rubio throws football and hits a child in the face. Bet Rubio longs for the days when candidates at the Fair tossed baseballs at Bobo the Clown and risked nothing more than insults.
* At the Plum Line Greg Sargent points out “birthright citizenship” was one of the GOP’s great accomplishments.
* At Ten Miles Square, Julia Azari looks at the history of presidents and candidates voluntarily limiting their tenure.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer discusses the NLRB ruling against recognizing Northwestern football players’ union organizing rights.
* At The Grade, Alexander Russo looks forward to the L.A. Times‘ robust education coverage.
And in non-political news:
* Baylor lineman gets into shape, drops from 440 pounds to a mere 392.
That’s it for Tuesday. Let’s close with one more 1997 performance by Luther Allison, on the island of La Reunion: “Living in the House of Blues.”
