Could’ve really used one of those federal holidays today, but that ain’t happening til Memorial Day.
Here are some remains of this non-holiday:
* New WaPo/ABC poll shows support for Obamacare receiving a plurality for the very first time. Maybe an outlier, but maybe not.
* “Gay propaganda” ban like Russia’s pending in Ukrainian parliament.
* Dave Weigel notes that the only incumbent member of Congress from South Carolina who has avoided any 2014 primary or general election opponent is Mark Sanford.
* At Ten Miles Square, Seth Masket notes that most of the fighting between Nate Silver and his pundalicious detractors has been going on for a long time.
* Also at Ten Miles Square, Keith Humphreys suggests both academics and politicians too frequently confuse statements of fact and arguments for future policies.
And in non-political news:
* Sports Illustrated live-blogs MLB Opening Day.
That’s it for Monday. Let’s close with one more Otis Rush tune, with “My Own Fault,” performed in Berlin in 1966.
