Happy Birthday to Jodie Foster, 50.
And a bit of good stuff:
1. More on districting, incumbency, and bias, from Eric McGhee. Big point remains the same: the GOP edge this time was in part incumbency, in part gerrymanders, and in part a natural advantage in the House for Republicans.
2. Good point from David Kamin on why cutting discretionary spending seems so easy.
3. Dylan Matthews explains the Mark Begich Social Security bill.
4. And Amanda Terkel looks at legislative ideas to fix the mechanics of elections.
