After struggling with the Baumann review of the Marsden book, I don’t have much left in the tank. So I’ll hold over any reaction to the Politico Magazine essay by the Third Way boys about Markos Moulitsas’ hostility to a Big Tent Democratic Party until tomorrow.
Here are some remains of the day:
* In Georgia’s more-conservative-than-thou Republican Senate primary, Jack Kingston uses the big sack of money he’s raised as a powerful appropriator to run ads describing himself as a tightfisted grinch. Hilarious.
* New Pew survey shows what we’ve seen for a long time now: Obamacare unpopular, but so is its repeal.
* At Ten Miles Square, Martin Longman praises Cory Booker for seeking common ground with Ted Cruz, even if it proves illusory.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer reports concern about debt has now outstripped fear of not getting into first-choice college among prospective students and their parents.
And in non-political news:
* Starbucks to sell beer and wine in evening hours at thousands of outlets. At their prices, a buzz of a different order isn’t an unreasonable request.
That’s it for Thursday. Let’s close with one more Hubert Sumlin performance: “Alone.”
