So much NFL Draft. I have Mike Mayock's voice ringing in my ears. And we're only through Round 1. Any observations?

Lippmann's Ghost: What's new in New York's 23rd Congressional District? (You may recall that this was the site of an early Tea Party uprising in 2009, dividing Republicans and handing the seat to the Democrats.)

Alternate Brain: Had enough of the Birthers? Well, say hello to the After-Birthers!

Zandar Versus the Stupid: It's not about race, say the Republicans, waging their vicious smear campaign against Obama. But then why did he have to show his papers?

Skippy the Bush Kangaroo: Surprise, surprise. Republicans are trying to disenfranchise (largely Democratic) voters (e.g., students, the poor, African-Americans), voting rights be damned.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. I'll be here all week.
