Happy Birthday to Terry Mulholland, 49. After his third separate stint with the Giants, he still had seven more teams to play for. That's a career!
Ah, the good stuff:
1. Sarah Posner on Bibi, Esther, and Christian conservatives. For those of you who haven't read it, Esther is, well, a pretty weird book. I recommend it!
2. Bash reporters, and they don't care; schedule conference calls when they can't make it or stop feeding them good stuff on background, and they'll turn on you. Reid Epstein reports on a Mitt Romney "charm offensive."
3. Irin Carmon documents the truth behind the myth that feminists ignore slurs by leading liberals and leftists.
4. Another round on the question of whether parties should be public utilities from Matt Glassman.
5. And one more myth you'll be hearing about -- a supposed $111B upward revision in ACA cost -- turns out to be much less than advertised. Jonathan Cohn explains; see also Kevin Drum for a good perspective.
