Happy Birthday to Mal Reynolds himself, Nathan Fillion, 41. You know, Castle is reasonably good fun (although I haven't actually seen any of it this season, I don't think, so I have no idea whether it's slipped or not). Meanwhile, you all know about this, right?
I could go on, but instead I'll get to the good stuff:
1. I'm not going to link to everything about ACA and the Supremes, but I'll give you Jonathan Cohn's version of what conservatives have already won. Not sure I agree, but worth reading.
2. Dan Drezner is skeptical about the idea that Barack Obama would unveil a secret, radical foreign policy agenda if he serves a second term.
3. Greg Sargent on a GOP Senate candidate who has an innovative response to fact-checkers: just ignore them.
4. The House Democrats have a budget! Rosalind Helderman reports. I suppose I need to take a look at it to see if it's as phony as the GOP budget, although it's hard to get a lot of enthusiasm for reading through what the House minority wants. Maybe.
5. And Nerdwar is back. Nate Silver goes after academic general election prediction models; Andrew Gelman is first out of the box for the defense, or the other side, or whatever. More to come. I think what Ed Kilgore wrote here is pretty reasonable.
