The Monday Morning Teaser

I’m still in Arizona, so everything is running a little later than usual. The featured post this week will continue the 2016 Stump Speeches series, focusing this week on Rand Paul’s announcement speech. (Yesterday, Hillary also said she’s running; maybe I’ll get to her next week.) Figure that to come out around 10 or 11 eastern time.

The weekly summary will include the Walter Scott shooting, some 150th-anniversary articles about the end of the Civil War that make similar points to my “Not a Tea Party, a Confederate Party“, and two mini book reviews, before closing with Mary Poppins’ plea for a higher minimum wage. Expect that around noon or so.

    I think you may mean the Walter “Scott” shooting. Walter Jones is an iconoclastic Republican congressman from North Carolina.

      Fixed it. Thank you. Trying to keep close to my usual schedule while I was in the West had me doing the Teaser way too early in the morning.

    Wow, this week’s Sift really delivered on what the teaser promised.

    Glad to have found this blog. It reminds me of Josh Marshall’s work at Talking Points Memo, when he was a standout writer–before he gave that up to become the publisher of a cheezy tabloid. I think The Weekly Sift is terrific: smart analysis trained on shrewdly chosen topics.
