Lots of good choices today, but I'll go with Happy Birthday to Katrina Leskanish, of Katrina and the Waves fame, 52.
And the good stuff:
1. Good comparison from Ezra Klein between the deficit-reducing properties of the Buffett rule and Paul Ryan's budget.
2. Mark Silk fisks Ross Douthat on religion. I think about 10% of it is nitpicky and a bit unfair, but the rest, and especially the end, sound right to me.
3. A similar conclusion? Ed Kilgore on what happened to Republican feminism.
4. And more about the House Republican budget and the potential offsets to tax cuts. Very useful. From Kevin Drum.
