— Ezra Klein’s response to Jane Hamsher’s case for killing the bill.

— Dana Houle on Ralph Nader and the ethic of responsibility.

— A better edition of “Politics as a Vocation” than the one I’ve been linking to.


— Surveillance state is more popular than blogs, less popular than cell phones.

— Obama really does deserve the blame for not appointing more liberal judges


— Krugman on the filibuster.
