So I thought we'd start off this Saturday by talking a little bit about Bernie Sanders, whose entrance into the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination race is, in my view, a welcome development (even if he won't win, and even if we'll end up rallying behind Hillary).
The Brad Blog: Sanders versus the "democracy deficit."
Arsenal for Democracy: Sanders outraises Rubio, Paul, and Cruz.
Otherwise, in non-Sanders matters:
Pruning Shears: The political effectiveness of rioting.
Squatlo-Rant: The state of Texas loses its mind.
Talk Left: The indictments in Christie's Bridgegate.
