Recommended Readings

The tragedy of Sarah Palin. By Joshua Green, The Atlantic. A more complicated story than you might think, brilliantly (and somewhat sympathetically) related. The chasm between state politics and national politics: "What if she had tried to do for the nation what she did for Alaska?"

Chomsky's Follies. By Christopher Hitchens, Slate. "The professor's pronouncements about Osama bin Laden are stupid and ignorant."

The Obama Spring. By John Heilemann, New York. Obama is no longer Jimmy Carter, but he might be George H.W. Bush.

Debt Ceiling May Come Crashing Down on Treasury. By Bruce Bartlett, Fiscal Times. It's not about the deficit; it's about cash flow, and keeping faith with creditors. Calling that into question? The word "irresponsible" is inadequate.
