1. The complete Gorsuch hearings for today

2. The Secretary of State. I’m not the biggest of his fans, but he seems like much less of a moron than Kerry. Of course, you can say that about many people.

3. Medicaid expansion only expanded the opioid epidemic

4. Peters projection to be used in Boston schools. Personally, I prefer the exactly twice as wide Lambert projection, which is undistorted at the equator, where Africa is (the Peters projection is undistorted at 45 degrees latitude, where Europe is).

5. Stuff the Senate is doing now

6. Kellyanne and NumbersUSA before Trump’s campaign. Also, how Lyin’ Ted flip-flopped on visa expansion.

7. What the Neocons want in Syria

8. Bad news (if true)

1. The Awan brothers

2. Russia becomes more explicit in backing SDF

3. Kurt Eichenwald harassing a guy

4. Happiest and unhappiest countries

5. People tend to become more conservative as they get older. This is controversial in some circles.

6. Evidence and the DJT budget

7. The rise of one-dimensional politics

8. Total production in the U.S. has probably risen more slowly than real GDP

9. Very interesting comments on this post

10. Latest Trump rally

1. Scott Alexander writes what is by far his worst and least defensible post. The only only part of it which has even a hint of a legitimate point is 6.1, and even there it does not explain pundits who don’t even know Brooklyn, like a certain Kaul Prubman.

2. Tracey goes on the offensive

3. Good point on Milo and Trump

4. Cuomo goes overboard

5. How the DNC became a group therapy session

6. Google memory holes Natural News. Good cause, bad means.

1. The second 2012 Baldwin-Thompson debate. Man, what a change in sides!

2. A surprisingly accurate article on the alt-right and its discontents

3. Keith Gessen on understanding Putinology

4. Good tweet on Milo

5. Draining the swamp

6. Not charged, but imprisoned for 16 months and counting

7. After Trump’s win, approval of how Republican leaders are doing soars among Republicans. John McCain’s approval rating is the same with Republicans as with Democrats.

8. Despite having a far more favorable opinion of GOP congressional leaders than Trump (unlike most Republicans), younger Republicans are far less likely to be anti-Russia than older Republicans.
