Good @perrybaconjr column on a trend many progressives are loathe to acknowledge: Democrats are losing voters of color on the margins to the Republican party https://t.co/WlrVR2kMi3

Excellent WSJ story on how Ukraine defeated Russia's attempt to destroy its morale through energy blackouts https://t.co/ENrt5xx2iJ

Here's what I wrote on the 10th anniversary of the Iraq war about what I got wrong and what lessons I took away from it. https://t.co/ECrsT0DpQp

The single fact that explains a huge amount of Twitter commentary is: most people simply do not read long articles. https://t.co/TTMcUCNLM8

I was, uh, one of the authors of the Weatherman Manifesto -- the original Weatherman Manifesto. Not the uncompromised second draft https://t.co/MeMqiW0vBz

The partnership between Biden and the progressive movement is the product of political and economic conditions that no longer exist https://t.co/dch5msTTsq

Why the progressive movement has shown unusual support for Biden, and why that is ending https://t.co/dch5msTTsq

A big-picture take on why I think the alliance between Biden and the progressive movement is ending https://t.co/dch5msTTsq

Good op-ed by @CarbonWrangler and @GernotWagner on how to expedite the climate spending in the IRA https://t.co/RaFdlOTnh6

Biden has had a strong alliance with the progressive movement since winning the nomination. For several reasons, I think it's breaking apart. https://t.co/dch5msTTsq

Tremendous @annanemtsova story about how Ben & Jerry's founder Ben Cohen is funding a group opposing aid to Ukraine https://t.co/w3YtJuE8c2

Why is 3-point shooting % down in the tournament? Former-player-turned-analyst says the ball is worse. https://t.co/OSoKypiRqH

This piece by @CitizenCohn does a good job of explaining how Gretchen Whitmer sees social issues (especially LGBT rights) working politically for Democrats https://t.co/xfWcoTOoY9

Missouri is making a huge tactical error by not crashing the offensive boards against Princeton

This @AdamSerwer essay on the history and political psychology of KKK-denial in the 19th century is one of the best things I've read in a long time https://t.co/x4Xvtd8vvz

I agree with @thomaschattwill that "woke" is a term best avoided https://t.co/NuNtD2S09r

Old CW: Trump is going to win by calling DeSantis a fatty New CW: Trump is going to win by stuffing his face with local treats while DeSantis wastes away on Ozempic https://t.co/0gtxVlH8d0

Do you think Biden should accept the Arizona loss? Or make a series of insane claims that the outcome was rigged? https://t.co/FMBQAj89Dx

NEPA is so terrible. Incredible detail in this @JerusalemDemsas story https://t.co/Byxn6KmcbB

The Claremont Institute, which presents itself as a "think-tank," claims SVB donated $74 million to BLM and funded riots. @joshtpm demolishes this claim. https://t.co/zS1CcoJMrf

Rufo's description is inaccurate. Emhoff merely says there is a lot of hate in the country, including at school meetings. He does not specifically cite conservatives, at school board meetings or elsewhere. https://t.co/ab2vjCaDSE

DeSantis is signaling a desire to pressure Ukraine to submit to peace on Russian terms https://t.co/HeNyUndlaU

I find the pile on about this clip kind of gross. She may be wrong, but she's not an idiot. She just froze up on TV. It happens. https://t.co/eArkaZoVRI

Are you implying William F. Buckley's defense of McCarthy was misguided? https://t.co/VbeDAJHGgW

DeSantis's position on Ukraine looks bad at first glance. It's even worse when you examine it closely. https://t.co/HeNyUndlaU

Stancil is especially ludicrous, but there are a lot of progressives who treat every opinion from center-left to far right as identical https://t.co/uLMMjxPZ2w

Warren's support was stagnant/eroding for months pre-Super Tuesday. But that never really flowed to Sanders, bc Warren's supporter base was not a bunch of progressives seeking closest ideological match. It was college educated Ds backing her as a D, albeit a more progressive one https://t.co/hrUpTapZXT

Small thing I noticed in SC this weekend: At a social conservative summit, moderators never tried to pin down candidates on their abortion policy. Compare this to Dems in 2019, when every group used forums to nail them down on specific policy asks. https://t.co/gBh1UD4iib

On CNN, Van Jones is urging Bragg to stand down, at least until after Trump is charged in Georgia.

Jason Sudeikis gave quick ⁦@TedLasso⁩ post-game report on seeing meltdown start to WH briefing. “Tough gig on both sides. I get it. High stakes,” he tells me https://t.co/jyjCwDUSNz

Never going to be part of any movement or clique where skepticism is negatively coded.

Sometimes when people say "woke" they mean "liberals being self-righteous and vicious about trivial things" and sometimes they mean "integration," or "civil rights laws" or "black people on television" and it's convenient not to have to explain what you actually mean.

I asked Bing to write a Bruce Springsteen son inspired by the famous Andrew Mellon quote: "Liquidate labor, liquidate stocks, liquidate farmers, liquidate real estate. It will purge the rottenness out of the system."

DeSantis is desperate to talk about anything other than his record on federal policy issues, he voted for the laxer rules on SVB that have left depositors facing possible losses. And he also voted for much more extreme bank bills that thankfully didn’t pass. https://t.co/YOlRVz8lky

Has there ever, in world history, been a more obvious solution to *any* problem than to the problem of MTG saying that she is miserable in Congress? https://t.co/PfyNv6zkTc

The great thing about the Trump peace plan is that it wouldn't even work on its own reasoning https://t.co/2e7MKfFqqa via @intelligencer

These two paragraphs are such a perfect example of how deranged and insane social media and the politicization of everything has made people.

The question on everyone's mind: Is the labor market too tight, are we operating above potential? The answer depends on whether you think we can recover from the negative labor supply shock that was the pandemic. I think we can.

NEWS: Cochrane says lead author of a mask review misrepresented its findings, apologizes for summary statement that was imprecise and says they will update it. They say their review did NOT find masks don't work. Plus, I examine the actual evidence. https://t.co/wi7eKZSSbi

I don't know anything about it if it's about Republicans being bad.
