Happy Birthday to Von Joshua, 65. What's not to like? Picked up on waivers from the Dodgers just in time for a freakishly good 27 year old season, then let go 40 games into the next year after he turned back into a 4th outfielder at best. I suppose the downside is that his "emergence" might have had something to do with giving away Garry Maddox, but the Giants in those years were foolish enough to have done that anyway, alas.
1. Steve M. on "the low-information media." Oy.
2. Andrew Rudalevige has something to say about "juice," too.
3. Yes, Obama beats McCain without the financial crisis. There was a months-old recession before that, you know. Harry Enten with the numbers.
4. And Conor Friedersdorf is not impressed with Frank Luntz. Join the club!
