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.
