Sunday Clips

Stuff from Sunday

A Human Being day today so not much news. But check out these three:

  • Bleeding Heartland has an excellent look at the weekend-long prevailing wage vote in the Iowa House that focuses not on the naysaying Democrats, but on the races that got away. Bet the Iowa Democratic Party regrets locking no-show Geri Huser's labor-backed primary opponent out of access to the party's voter file now, huh?

  • Nate Silver crunches the numbers on California's jungle primary proposal. "Land of a Thousand Liebermans," he calls it, which if you read my whole series last week on partisanship, you know I say noooo, no no no noooo, no no no no, no no no, no no no, no no no noooo! Not to mention No no no no no no no no no, No no no no no no no no, No no no no no no no no, No no no no no. I always thought "Nobody But Me" would be put to good use in a negative referendum campaign.

  • In our Dynasty Watch series, 32 year old George P. Bush is out campaigning at the Young Republicans convention. Chelsea Clinton, of course, had no comment. Won't that be a fun 2016 race?.
