  • Glenzilla analyzes Barack Obama’s response on FISA. He gets credit for answering his supporters. Not so much credit for the answer itself.
  • Pam remembers Jesse Helms.
  • Evangelicals hold their noses and rally around McCain. I guess the imminent specter of President Obama outlawing Christianity was just too much for them to bear.
  • The Shrill One on the Wes Clark episode: "The latest fake scandal fit the usual pattern as an awkwardly phrased remark, lifted out of context and willfully misinterpreted, exploded across the airwaves."

  • Charlie Crist engaged. No comment.
  • Spencer has set up a fund for blogger Brian Beutler, who was shot the other night. He’s got the button on the top of his page. Brian’s got "some health insurance," which — as nyceve attests — is never enough to cover everything.

Have some macaroni salad for Kobe!
