1. Electionate has a nice "ignore the electoral college" post. Well, he or she doesn't say that, but it's the implication. Exactly right: there may be an electoral college bias, but it's too early to know.
2. Brad DeLong (and others) about the Bush deficits.
3. Did torture lead to bin Laden? Adam Serwer lays out the cases for and against.
4. And the story behind rising Social Security Disability costs, by Kathy Ruffing.
