I have two projects that should see the light tomorrow: a second post on Rich Yeselson’s important essay on the labor movement at Democracy; and (time permitting) my first effort at a listicle, this one on the many ways GOPers are sabotaging “rebranding” aspirations.
But here are some final items for today:
* Sarah Palin back on board as paid contributor to Fox News. I suspect her salary is down a bit, though.
* Arizona legislature on the brink of approving Medicaid expansion as Gov. Jan Brewer faces down intraparty cries of treason.
* At Ten Miles Square, Seth Masket argues partisan “hypocrisy” on government surveillance programs really just reflection of who people trust with power.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer notes that the much-awaited SCOTUS decision on affirmative action in college admissions won’t matter much at the growing majority of schools with non-competitive admissions standards.
And in non-political news:
* Global stock selloff ends after positive U.S. news on jobless claims and retail sales released.
To end the day, here’s the iconic Santana performance: “Soul Sacrifice,” at Woodstock in 1969.
