By Ed Kilgore

Man, I think I’m going to try to sleep for 15 hours tonight. If that’s not in the cards, I should finish the Perlstein book assuming I’m not too sick.

Here are some remains of the day:

* Jonathan Chait thinks a lot of criticism of Obama economic advisors is a surrogate attack on the president from unhappy lefties.

* D’Souza compares Ferguson protestors to ISIS. Of course he does.

* Benyamin Applebaum discusses theories that sluggish economy and chronic unemployment owe a lot to pre-Great Recession developments.

* At Ten Miles Square, Jonathan Bernstein notes conspiracy theories exist all over spectrum, but get more elite support on right than on left.

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer discusses chronic problem of transfer students losing credits.

And in non-political news:

* Huffpost offers an Emmy preview for Monday.

That’s it for Friday. David Atkins and D.R. Tucker will be in for weekend blogging, and the 2014 College Guide will be released on Monday, so tune back in.

We’ll close with Robert Junior Lockwood performing “I Feel Like Blowin’ My Horn” in Lincoln, MA in 1987.

Selah.
