Things to Entertain and Enlighten You

Still on holiday, I'm afraid.  But if you're looking for things to do on a Sunday afternoon, I've gots 'em.

If you're in a political wonk mood, Ezra Klein's got up a series on the filibuster that's a must-read.   Start with the first link, and then read his interviews with Barbara Sinclair, Tom Harkin, Andy Stern, and Jeff Merkley.

Steve Benen has an interesting post up on visionary incrementalism.  And a lovely deconstructions of Con stupidity surrounding one very inept terrorist.  As he points out, Pete Hoekstra's a shameless buffoon.  Think Progress, quickly assessing Hoekstra's mental age, helps him play connect the dots.

Not ready to face pollyticks just yet?  In the mood for some sublime satire?  Why, then, Richard B. Hoppe has just the thing for you!  Do not miss Dr. Boli's Celebrated Magazine.  I spent an instructive day at work perusing the pages of this plethora of pontification.  It's delightful.

And don't forget to check out the weapons-grade stupidity Ed Brayton found for us.

Right, then.  Enjoy your Sunday, my darlings, and I shall see ye later.
