As noted briefly yesterday, I’m going to take some vacation next week, and won’t be blogging Monday, Tuesday or Thursday. I will handle the Veterans’ Day Lite Blogging duties, and will be back for a full Friday. Nancy LeTourneau and Martin Longman will more than adequately sub for me. Maybe a weekday change of pace will be nice.
Here are some remains of the day:
* At TNR Elspeth Reeve argues that Jeb Bush has let himself be treated much as John Kerry allowed his brother to treat him in 2004. Interesting theory with some disturbing implications about the desire of American voters for macho posturing.
* SCOTUS formally takes up challenge by religious non-profits of self-insurance scheme Obama administration has created for Obamacare contraception coverage mandate. It’s a corollary to the Hobby Lobby case, but could go in different way.
And in non-political news:
* Crab fends off hungry crows. As a coastal resident, I can relate to this story.
That’s it for Friday. Nancy LeTourneau will be in for Weekend Blogging tomorrow. We’ll close with Infectious Grooves and an appropriate Friday Happy Hour kinda tune from 1992: “These Freaks Are Here To Party.”
