I’ve been learning about Ayn Rand lately, not reading her books, but learning about her. I remember as a teenager friends telling me I should read the Fountainhead and for some reason I was never that interested in it based on what I heard about it. The more I learn, the more it makes me laugh that some on the Right are embracing her ideas so vigorously. Amy Sullivan at Swampland has this interesting piece about this phenomenon.

I never understand why Republicans think that crying in the media about being picked on helps them somehow. They look like children.
Booman has a great post about minority voter suppression and how Republicans hate those groups, the hate part was mine!
Jim Wright over at Stonekettle Station has a nice piece about old Newt Gingrich’s entry into the GOP horse race, giddyup!
Sometimes you just gotta love Stephen Colbert, he’s forming his own “Colbert Super PAC”. TPM has the full story with video, pretty cool stunt Stephen.
