Happy Birthday to Chuck D., 52.
Quickly to the good stuff:
1. Andrew Gelman responds again on the electoral college. Must-read if you've been following the discussion.
2. Steve Kornacki reviews recent Democratic Keynotes Addresses. Fun.
3. I very much agree with David Frum about Ted Cruz and "the establishment."
4. And Emily Heil has a nice point about Mitt Romney's trip: he wasn't exactly well-staffed.
