And so it's Super Bowl Sunday... at last. It's been a pleasure being here this past week. Thanks as always to Mike for the wonderful opportunity and to Blue Gal for being such a kind editor. I invite you all to visit my place, The Reaction. We have a fantastic team of bloggers, if I do say so myself, and we'd love to see you there.

Lippmann's Ghost: Glenn Beck is crazy. And he's also one of the Democrats' best friends.

Muddy Politics: Republicans can't handle change. And they're proving to be stalwart defenders of the Bush-era status quo, including by trying to find any way possible to destroy the Affordable Care Act.

Connecting the Dots: It's Reagan's centennial birthday today. And conservatives continue to mythologize him as a way to pretend the decline of the American Empire isn't real.

Mario Piperni: The Amazonian rain forest is dying. Inhofe and the rest of the global warming deniers probably think that's a hoax, too.

Go Steelers!!!!! (Though I'll pick the Packers to win, 34-20.)
