Happy Birthday to Eliezer Alfonzo, 34.
And right to the good stuff:
1. Sarah Kliff reports on how John Kasich came to support Medicaid expansion.
2. Ed Kilgore on "Bush people" and "Reagan people."
3. I generally side against Dan Drezner on this one.
4. Always good to see Ta-Nehisi Coates in the NYT -- this time on gun violence.
5. And my brother, the critic. Of how politicians use giant ceremonial props.
