Happy Birthday to Alicia Silverstone, 36. Sure hoping that Vamps turns out to be awesome. Clueless, of course, is one of the great classic movies, and she was terrific in it; she was also just fine in Branagh's Love's Labour's Lost, which almost everyone hated -- but there is a small group of us who loved it. Back to Vamps and Clueless: it really is one of the great tragedies that Amy Heckerling doesn't have a long string of great movies. A major black eye for Hollywood.
Just a little good stuff after a late night:
1. Good debate wrap from Ezra Klein. Even better debate wrap from Jonathan Cohn. Both very much worth reading.
2. Great story of a former "hardcore fundamentalist true believer," her daughter, and "2016," the Obama-bashing movie. By Vyckie Garrison.
3. And Harry Enten on why we care about the national polls. You know I'm with him on that. Also Kevin Drum on "statistical ties."
