Today’s news cycle was so barren that I almost resorted to writing about David Brooks questioning Obama’s “manhood,” which would be a new low in shooting fish in a barrel.
Here are some remains of the day:
* TNR’s Jonathan Cohn provides a comprehensive look at causes and implications of apparent uptick in health care inflation.
* Former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson luridly suggests Media Matters paid to criticize her, which they’d be happy to do for free.
* Napster co-founder Sean Parker to leap into politics with his very large wallet.
* At Ten Miles Square, Julia Azari suggests RNC nomination process changes aimed at reining in insurgents might backfire.
* At College Guide, Michael Krupnick explores trend among law schools of lowering tuition to improve enrollment.
And in non-political news:
* Meteor shower to peak tomorrow, just in time for Earth Day.
That’s it for Monday. We’ll close with one more Brownie McGhee performance with Sonny Terry: “Key to the Highway,” after an introduction from Pete Seeger.
