Read Stuff, You Should

Happy Birthday to Kelis, 33.

To the good stuff:



1. I tend to be more of a Politico defender than Politico attacker, but they really were at their worst in the Galilee story; Conor Friedersdorf gets this one right.

2. Fine. Another shot at Niall Ferguson. From Steve M.

3. Aha! Mark Blumenthal's Pollster ups the ante with a new polling model from Simon Jackman. Add this to (as he says) Nate Silver and Drew Linzer, and you'll be in pretty good shape.

4. And I meant to get to this in my Friday baseball post, but then the weekend sort of collapsed on me and so I didn't do one, but Steven Rubio on Melky. And, hey, as long as I'm there, how about Christina Kahrl on the Melkyless Giants.

  1. The post from Friedersdorf is fine, but the FBI was investigating Michael Grimm's fundraising, as they have been for some time. See TPM. While that's still a problem for Politico's article, I think Friedersdorf should have mentioned it. And this isn't the first time I've noticed him going for the glib point.
