Lippmann's Ghost: Paul Ryan is drinking his own Medicare reform bath water.

Newshoggers: Rick Perry is vigorously embracing the bigoted, theocratic right.

Bark Bark Woof Woof: Yes, believe it or not, even David Brooks has come to realize the Republicans aren't normal.

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